I purchased a wire mesh grill for my '65 sprite awhile back and didn't realize that it didn't come with the mounting ears that are riveted to grill. Anyone know where I can purchase those tabs or should I just buy another grill and remove the tabs from it?

Thanks!

Make your own. 2 on the bottom....4 on the top. I slot the bottom ones so that they will slide on to the bottom bolts and use speed nuts on the top. Fitting the grill can be a PITA.

Thanks guys. I made some crude ones out of some thing gauge steel that I had lying around. Was just looking for something a bit more refined.
