I wonder if a bridge can be made between '08-10 and '11-12 Honda Accord Coupe grilles? Do you think there is a way to combine two pieces into a unique look?

By the way, you might want to patent your idea. Who knows, Acura or some aftermarket maker might use your design and make a lot of money. Just a thought.

Patents are for methods, not for appearances. Most he could do is try to Trademark something with an Acura logo, lol, wouldn't go far.

Love your 4th gen TL...thanks again for the video. Amazing work. I may have to meet you and pay you to do some work for my bumpers. Front and rear need a little love.

That's a lot of work for a modified beak... but the end result is a million times better than OEM. Way to go man!

Acura should hire you as a designer. Absolutely beautiful!

Fantastic work! You should send your pictures to American Honda's design headquarters in Torrance, California and tell their engineers THIS is how they should have designed the front grille of the TL to begin with!

May 2009 - Present: 2009 Accord V6 6 MT coupe w/o nav, Alabaster Silver

Dec. 1999 - May 2010: 2000 Prelude 5 MT, sold with 220,000 miles and still running great - gone, but not forgotten

Nexson - you've done a magnificient job!

My next door neighbor has a really nice 2008 Acura TL in their candy apple red color - I've always thought that gen was the nicest Acura TL I've ever seen. He and I were just talking about this today. He agrees.

However, your mod takes this to a whole another level, you could be an OEM designer - great work!!
