I want to cut out, the stock inside of my grille, on my 95' and insert some black mesh, or silver, my radiator/ac condensor are black, so i think it will look good, anyone know how hard it is to cut out the vertical plastic lines?.. seems simple but not sure..

The plastic is ABS, so it shouldn't be too hard. You'll need a saw that can fit in the space, though.

The '98 Sentra grille is a 2-piece design, whereas the '95-'97 uses a one-piece design. My old grille got cracked on the surround piece, so that's why I could not do that mod anyhow...needed a whole new grille. :) Good luck!

Finally...borrowed my mom's digital camera and took some pics of the car.

Here is one of the damaged grille before:



Also, the scratch on my hood from the flying tire tread on the highway:



Finally, here is the new grille:



That's all for now!

I'm not sure if it would help or look better, but I would say that you should take your grille off, use lots of newspaper and tape, then paint whats behind your grille with like a flat black, it will give your grille more depth.
I did my grille myself using a hacksaw and cutting out the horizontal lines, then using diamond mesh from home depot. Heres a pic of it before I painted whats behind the grille black, I dont have any pics right now of how it looks after I painted it, but just imagine not being able to see the white grille mounts or whatever...


And about people asking about doing your grille yourself like that, it is sorta harder than it looks, because after you cut out the lines, you will probably need to sand down the inside sides of the grille where the lines were, then after you sand it, youre gonna have to paint it too, I think it took me about 6 hours to do it. But as long as you take your time, it should turn out good.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK I SHOULD DO.. I WANT THAT MESH GRILL LOOK FROM THE 98 WITHOUT LOGO.. BUT I HAVE THE 99 OPEN BOTTOM LOOK.. WITH THE CUT HEADLIGHTS.. I DONT PLAN ON GETTING PROJECTORS FOR A WHILE.. BUT EVENTUALLY.. SHOULD I JUST WAIT TO SEE IF I GET THEM.. BECAUSE I WANT THAT LOOK N0W.. DO YOU THINK IT WOULD LOOK STUPID TO HAVE THE 98 MESH NO LOGO GRILL WITH THE HEADLAMPS THE WAY THEY ARE? Travis..

WOW this is an old thread.

To take off the grille, im assuming you mean off the car, there are a couple of clips around the back of the grille and one in the middle.
You can use some type of putty or zip ties to hold the mesh onto the grille.

Or just buy a 98 Sentra grille.
