Hey, good job on the grille, mikeb. Does anyone else find it eerily odd that LightemUp haven't responded to most of the cosmetic mods? Normally he has something to add to these threads?

I do believe it was about 10-15 dollars (chrome wheel well moulding) and it was a self-install

Yes, it was the "TEN DOLLAR" Billet grill! I am the one who did the professional install. It was very easy to do! I just started a 1/2" down from the top and then placed each other one, 1" from that. They stick pretty good, but I took a blow dryer to it and made it stick even better!

For those that are going to install the grill: Just make sure you cut the ends at the angle of the body, so you can make sure they run straight and level on the factory grill! And don't curve the last one at the bottom, just cut the ends at a very sharp angle so it will run level!
Good luck and will your down please post pic's.

I have to admit it does look rather classy. Good work guys!

I like brother's idea of having the RX-8 badge cut into the center "bar".

Cheers,
Hymee.

Is anyone concerned the grille is eventually going to blow off as it only is attached with stick tape/adhesive? Guess if it does, you just spend an extra $10 though..

This wheel well molding is meant to be curved around the wheel opening, and stuck on the fender surface. I rarely see one of these coming off. In our application it is straight, not curved, and every time you drive, the wind pressure is pushing on it. Mine has been on for over a month, and is solidly stuck on.

You can get the wheel well molding from autozone - petboys - or almost any car parts place. Its very cheap and very easy to install. Also what I love is that when you get over it you can just pull it off and have no marks.
