I will end up opening up the grill but what will it put behind it that will look realistic?

Keep on posting. Folks are following your build, which looks great by the way. As far as grill material, you could purchase some aftermarket photo-etch metal screen material or go to Lowes or something like that and get some window/door screen material and make your own. There are several sizes so you can pick what looks best to you.

Don't stop posting updates, a bunch of people want to see this being built, I'm one of them being a huge Mopar fan myself. We many not comment all the time but I can assure you we are watching. Keep on posting updates and best of luck with your build, I'm looking forward to seeing it at the starting line in December along side my 67 gtx. :)

Jason, I used some grille material left over from a tamiya focus kit but a chunk of window screen is similar. Did you see what I meant about those headlights?
