Well, the grill arrived while I was in NC for the long weekend. Even though the packaging (thanks for the decorations, Barry, haha) said DO NOT BEND all over it, they definitely bent it vertically...bastards. The bend created two super-weak points in the grill, but I think once it's screwed in flat you won't really be able to tell, except for the two kinks.

That's what it looked like! I bent it back pretty straight, but there are still kinks on both sides. I haven't had good luck with shipping anything to NYC, it sucks.

Finally got this thing installed tonight before this hail storm that's supposed to hit. I took some before and after pics for anyone still thinking of getting one. Did anyone else who installed one have this issue of the grill sticking out from the top? There's obviously no screws up there, so I was thinking of running a zip tie behind the Land Rover badge or something like that. It's probably because of my A/C, but just figured I'd see if anyone else had this issue.

Specops, what does yours look like at the top?

Is the grill bent? There is no reason it should stick out like that. Is your fan screwed up?

Yeah, looks like your grill is still bent. It should lay flat against the grill surround.

Keep bending it until it's flat, use a table if you have to to check it.

I would love one barry. If you end up getting your hands on a few, just let me know where to send the check/paypal. I promise not to resell it this round

Maintenance costs. Those don't look cheap at all.

Cheap? I'll tell you what looks cheap.

"ALL THE PLASTIC CRAP"

I think the Heritage Grill is a damn sight better than any of the other sheet metal grills out there that come with oval or other odd-shaped holes that bear no resemblance to any aspect or feature in the entire history of Land Rover design. One the Heritage Grill, the square openings and the ratio of open area to mesh thickness is much closer to the old series grill than any other non-standard defender grill I have seen. The SS one I sold to Lane was pretty good in that respect as well, but I didn't like it for other reasons. The best case scenario would be a Stage One grill, but those are rarer than rocking horse shit so aren't really an option.

The plastic grills looks like bloody shite when they are faded and cracked and hanging off the front of the truck. That won't happen with a metal grill. Though I wish the Heritage grill was steel so that I could get it hot dipped.

You sure have some interesting views given that you have been driving around in the Partridge Family bus for a few years now...

I think he means Janey. He knows better than to disrespect the Honda and unleash my wrath. Especially so close on the heals of the loss of my beloved accord .
