Steel Defender Front Grille - $80

Want a Defender grill that provides the protection to stop something bigger then a bumble bee? Or just looking to add that heavy duty look to the face of your Defender!

Martin Šimončič owns a small engineering company in Europe and is finishing up the design of a new heavy duty front grille for a Land Rover Defender.

Protect your radiator, oil cool, intercooler and engine it self with a galvanized steel grille.

Here are the product details:
-Galvanized Steel
-1.5 mm thick -powder coated black
-weight 0.3 kgs or 2/3 lbs
-uses existing mounting

Priced for only $80 plus shipping!!

I have a set of his aluminum door hinges on my D90. Martin does great work, easy to work with, ships promptly (if in stock), and for great prices.

I am getting tired of worrying that I am going to crack my 30 year old plastic grille every time I am working on the front end of my truck or winching. I like the new heavy duty grille he is putting together. I will be ordering one, and figured I would share Martin's new product to get interest in hope to get together a group pre-order together and maybe get a bulk order discount or shipping discount. Be the first in the world to sport these new grilles!

He said stainless steel is still on the table as an option.

Looks sharp! I have already had to replace one grill after two slats cracked on a camping trip. I like the idea of something tougher.

For those reaching through the grill to get the bonnet release (myself included), how does the spacing compare to the factory grill? Are the gaps between slats the same spacing?

Currently the only one made is on Martin's Defender, but I will pass along your question.

Martin produces all his products in his own shop and still waiting for him to run a production lot of these grilles. Think he will take orders at that time.

He usually will send you a simple invoice via Paypal and once you pay that he ships. I am just taking names now, patience is appreciated.

Just post your interest here and I easiest way for me to track.

I promise you won't be forgotten and I will relay any more info/pics that I get from Martin.

I am pushing hard to keep it at or below $100 including shipping for us. The more guys I can get on board the more I have to negotiate discounts.

I have it posted on our FB page Land Rover Defender - USA to get some more guys.

I would definitely be interested in several if the Defender name was not on the top.
From a design perspective he has created a very clean grill, but the raised tab with the name takes away from clean lines. IMO

------ Follow up post added June 24th, 2017 10:27 AM ------

I apologize if I am stepping on toes, and in no way mean to offend or criticize.
Would the original poster be offended if I added edited image he provided of grill showing it without the name?
I cannot post without permission, it is your photograph.
