Over the years, I have made a number of custom grilles for members of the R170 forums. This is one that I made for a customer that decided they preferred a completely blacked out grille with no MB star. This is the only grille I have ever made like this, and I believe it's one of the nicest styles I've created. I had to fabricate special bucks to create this particular grille in order to form a single piece of AMG mesh and then inset the all metal, factory chrome MB star into a depression in the center. I normally charge $400 for these custom SLK grilles. I am making space in the shop and will sell this one for $300 shipped in the lower 48. It is unique, very attractive, professionally fabricated, and no other grille like it exists on any R170.

Do you make them for the 171 as well? Thanks :D And I'm also curious about what MK asked for, Jae is the only person I've seen with a no star solid mesh 170 grille.

You have an amazing looking SLK55...always wanted to widebody a '32. But to your question, sorry no. If I were in the states I'd offer to build one if you sent me a stock grille, but I'm out of the country right now.

I've made other no-star grilles -- last one for a customer in Colorado. Sorry no R171 at present but if I build one in the future I will post.

Thx,
Craig
