The grille of a car is a large part of the styling and design of the whole vehicle. It works with the headlights to give the front of the car a ‘face’. Designers put a lot of effort into making sure the grille works with the car. Sports cars and performance-oriented SUVs will typically have more angular grilles, whilst a little hatchback designed to be a city runabout will tend to have a smaller and more curved grille. But how are grilles made, what materials are used, and what makes a Zunsport custom grille unique?
To save money and production time, manufacturing car grilles on a large-scale are typically made using inexpensive plastic poured into moulds before being fitted. For many economy cars and mid-range vehicles, most of the OEM grille is made of plastic. Of course, many high-end cars such as the Maserati range will feature metal inserts for stylistic purposes, but with many modern cars having large amounts of non-functional grilles for aesthetic purposes, the likelihood of plastic still being present is high.
What makes a Zunsport grille a cut above the standard unit that comes fitted on your car? Firstly, every grille is individually developed and weaved for your vehicle, using higher quality materials than OEM grilles. With high-grade stainless steel, the grille mesh is weaved by a wire-weaving machine which produces much stronger and resilient mesh than a welded-steel equivalent. After the mesh is weaved, it is then cut to size and then welded into place. A Zunsport grille is beautiful finished in either black nylon, or stainless steel using electropolishing, protecting your car from harsh weather conditions and general wear and tear.
