Just wondering, what you guys think one of the honeycomb (NON-LUCINO) grills should go for.

My grill is snapped on a few spots, and as the saying goes, kinda: Broken stuff is an oportunity for an upgrade!

There are 2 different types of the honey comb grill. One is a 2-piece and One is a 1-piece. On the 2-piece one the honey comb is removable.
I personally think chicken wire on any car looks cheap. 2 each their own.

In my opinion, I dont think it looks that cheap. It looks pretty nice actually. I did it on my own car, spray painted the mesh black, and tied it on the border of the cut out grill. Here is a picture...

agreed, but around here, the need for the chickenwire to protect an FMIC is pretty practical. As much of a city as the place I live is, we're small and surrounded by a national forest to the north and rural landscape to the south and west. Bunnies ruin FMICs, I've seen the aftermath and it aint pretty.

Anyway, on topic again. I ordered one for $25 shipped on the 'bay. I'm psyched to get my broken and rattling one off.

Got mine in the mail and the fitment wasn't too hard to work around. The bottom two mounts don't line up at all (I can see where it would work around the 98-99 headlights) Hacksaw and zipties got the job done however. After I get an emblem on it I'll snap some pics.

There is no way around this man.
Zip ties are your friend :) My 98-99' Sentra SE grill has been holding on with 4 zip ties for 2 years now.

Only the 98 200SX & 99 Sentra models with the odd shape headlights have problems with fitting the bottom 2 mounts. 95-97 200SX's and 95-98 Sentras fit with no mod.
ahhhh.

thanks.

or if you get the headlights that we carry it has grill brackets that you can use.
