custom grill. anyone make one?

i was thinking about cutting out the bars and putting in black wire mesh thing in there and putting a P.O.W. symble in the middle. im doing a custom military look and thought that crazy idea up but i was wondering if anyone else has done anything like this. if so can you post pics

Honestly, the grill is one of the parts on a cj -or any jeep that is iconic. West coast customs did a zippo jk with a custom grill. It looked awful.
If you could keep the grill, and put a thin over or underlay on it, I think that would be cool. Some crafty air brush work could also be an option.
