Photos wanted of rear mounted grill

I am looking for photos of a Defender grill that is mounted from the rear. Specially I am looking for how it is mounted. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Anyone have a Stage 1 grill or similar that mounts from the back?

When I googled Land Rover Stage 1 grill this was the second photo

http://www.google.com/imgres?safe=of...tart=0&ndsp=15

and this was the fourth

It looks like there are just some tabs up top and two front-driven screws on the bottom.

Ok. So what I'm looking for is something more along the lines of the Twisted grill that utilizes the existing shroud but the grill doesn't cover the shroud edge to edge like the stock grill. Aside from the Twisted one nothing else exists it seems.

Why not buy the twisted one?

I have a wall hanger stage one grill but as said above it mounts into the grill surround not behind it.

I decided against it and it's not out yet. I don't want their grill, I just want to know if anyone else has done it and if so how they mounted it. Looks like its only Twisted for now. I am currently developing a design that will be prototyped shortly and I have an idea about how to go about mounting it.

Yep, that one is really nice as well. Looks like they're just using the existing mounting holes to bolt through.

Depending on material, there are a few ways to go about mounting behind the facia. We can chat over beers Friday...
