Yeah, the pre-facelift/facelift hoods will swap. I just don't like preface grilles either.

I want to see an actuall pic. My thinking is if you're already making it a GTR why not change the grills to the facelift style? other part i dislike is the bump at the back bent for the heater. i would prefer it to be flat like the OEM hood.

Probably not since Raf's version of cheap goes something like you paying him to take your stuff, but I'm counting on that for entertainment value.
