Does anyone know of a place where I can get reasonably priced custom made wooden 1911 grips? I've got an idea for my dad, and want to do something different, but obviously don't have a ton of money to spend.

Ps, this is the GUN thread, not BRAKES thread! Rofl

I really like that! Is there a way to change it so the mounting holes become studs underneath so they're not visible once installed? Would make for a much cleaner appearance. Like the old school hood scoops. I just know a lot of people prefer to not have visible screws/bolts/rivets on the outside of the body.

Could fold the outer lip underneath and attach threaded studs so one could drill the hood and attach with nuts and lock washers or nylock nuts. Would make a cool product and awesome product. I would almost definitely buy one for mine.

The plan right now for the JK 100% is going to be stainless steel rivets. There's too much of an under hood structure to use bolts IMO. On the TJ, up in the air right now. Will either be button head bolts or rivets also. Welding studs on adds a pretty substantial cost and we're looking to hit the market around the same price as the louvered ones but with something totally different! I can promise for everyone of you that would rather not see the bolts there's just as many that do. Can't please everyone...

BTW, those pictures make it look like it's really tall! It's got some shape to it for sure but it looks really exaggerated in those photos imo.

Send me one for my YJ I have rivets.

How much of an opening is there in square inches?? It should move the heat out. Looks better than most out there and I could paint it the same color as my hood.

They're gonna be steel painted black from us pretty much as seen above but... Ignore all the nasty grind marks and crap you see. Those are first samples and need a lot of improvement before I'll accept and allow them to start production.

If you're ever on the east side of town/henderson with your YJ, I'd actually love to lay one on your hood and see if the curvature of them fits it. I actually have a TJ one in my garage and could check it at my house in evenings or weekends or if during weekday working hours you could easily swing by my work too. JK and TJ hoods look flat but they aren't. The louvered ones on the market right now are flat but thin enough that they'll take the shape of your hood. With the forming of these though, these won't do that so I had to make sure to match the curvature of the hood. That's all I needed a TJ hood for right now was to check the profile for gaps. I'd be curious if by chance they do work on the YJ though.

I'd have to check my cad at work next week for opening sizes. we'll be providing a cut template of what we'd recommend to cut your hood. The TJ's can get away with quite a bit of opening... The JK, not so much cause of the underhood structure. At least our template isn't going to allow for as much cutting. If people wanted to cut more, they can, but we're not going to show it on our template. Someone like me, I'd probably cut way more then our template is going to suggest but not everyone is so liberal when it comes to cutting holes in their vehicles. LOL

GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If you're at Marns tomorrow you're welcome to cruise by and we can slap it on your hood... The scoop thing that is... I'm 99.99999999999999999999999999% sure it won't fit right but would only take a minute and assuming you're getting off 95 at either trop or flamingo to go to his house I'm all of about 2 minutes out of your way most likely depending on if you hit every light red or not. LOL

I might have some rosewood grips I took off my 1911 you can have. I'll have to check the garage tomorrow.
