Ok first off I apoligize if this is posted else-were but i searched with no success.

I Want my front grille ports recessed slightly (Bout 1/2 in )

I do not care for the flush look that pontiac put on some of there more recent vehicles (My dad's 04 gto has same style grille) but I do like the recessed look on other models (Our 09 Vibe Gt's Grille looks pretty good)

looking for kinda something like this:

Any Help/Ideas?

Thanks!

See the black part above the grill, when you open the hood?

That is the piece the kidneys are attached to, you'd have to cut them out, recess them, and figure a way to re connect them.

Go to the How To section.

Check out my post on making a grill (i think it's posted as (Making a grill, cheaper but better)). What you do is cut out the kidneys, find a grill that has bigger openings, and glue or tape it into the original kidney slots. that way it will be recessed and you can paint it whichever color you like.
