    they discontinued them......they are on e-bay, or another company started making them....but they are too pricey in my book....you can buy some mods for to cost...IMHO

    It's highly unlikely you'll find SAP grills at the dealership. They have been discontinued and are very expensive if you can find them.

    There were some people making repros last I checked. I'll see if I can get a link for ya.

    Here's the real deal.

    I don't understand these. Do you buy a kit and have to build them yourself? Do they come painted? The website is pretty vague.

    I wouldn't mind changing my grille out with these though. One less place to tell the avg. person what my car is.

    I think they come as the bezel and the grill itself (with instalation hardware). If I remember correctly, you'll have to prep/primer/paint them. You can get the bezels only and put whatever mesh you like on it.
    The originals are very spendy. After they quit making them, there were no alternatives for the SAP style, so it wasn't uncommon to see SAP grilles go for $500+ on ebay.

    Forget about the grill work, who did the paint work on the car?? The wet sanding must have been excellent. I cannot see a blemish anywhere on the hood. The hood has the appearance that no amount of buffing, polishing, or wax layering can produce. Nice work!

    not hating on your car but it would be hard to ignore if I had my eyes closed. So much I want to say but just won't.

    I don't mean to be critical, but is that? Why would you do that to your car? Maybe it will look better once it's finished. All you need is a couple of 6" fart cans and you'll be all set.

    Sorry for the bad attitude.

    I have a 1970 saab sonett3 factory fiberglass rally car ,car #29 of 303 built in 70 and just 7000 built in its run....all kinds of custom work including a supercharged honda drivetrain. took 4 years to get it done and its a sweet ride (looks like a baby ferrari) I just wish I had more time to work on the goat so I can get it finished, looking great and one of a kind.
