Bro can you let me know how to get in contact with him or just give me the part number
Parts you need (he sent me the list):
-Surround, Front Grille
P.N. = 75105-TZ3-A01
-Base, Grille
P.N. = 75111-TZ3-A01
-Seal, Front Grille
P.N. = 75147-TZ3-A01
-Cover, Front Grille
P.N. = 71123-TZ3-A11
-Mesh, Front Grille Diamond
P.N. = 71124-TZ3-A11
-Cover, Front Grille Radar (A)
P.N. = 71125-TZ3-A11
-Ring, Front Emblem
P.N. = 71126-TZ3-A11

Or, you could just buy the last 4 parts of the list along with your current first 3 parts.

Just a heads up, my local dealers prices for the last 4 parts (Canada), about $200 cheaper than buying from the USA and shipping:
-Cover, Front Grille
P.N. = 71123-TZ3-A11
$86.65

-Mesh, Front Grille Diamond
P.N. = 71124-TZ3-A11
$310.23

-Cover, Front Grille Radar (A)
P.N. = 71125-TZ3-A11
$272.50

-Ring, Front Emblem
P.N. = 71126-TZ3-A11
$182.25

I have bought all the parts and started on this project. Did anyone ever get/take pics of the back? Instagram dude doesn't show it (can't blame him protecting his work). I'm curious how it all is connected.

I'll be honest, my goal here is to manufacture these for a hell of a lot less than buying the parts from the dealer. The chrome ring $90ish USD? Probably $3 worth of material and easily replicated. It's atrocious how expensive this plastic is because of an Acura part number. Stay tuned.

I never really hated the beak on the TLX, but I did fall in love with the new grille of the 2018 models. So I saw a guy on instagram was making these custom grilles, took a chance, and here's the final product on my 2015 tech!

I like the face lift the 2018's received, especially the new diamond pentagon grille, but I feel like it looks a little 'fat' and makes the car's front end seem really wide. Not to say it's not a good looking vehicle, because it is, just my opinion. This grille gave me the best of both worlds, the diamond pentagon grille and inward sloping grille/headlights/bumper that I love about the 15's.

Anyways, what do you all think?

Love the look. I just had mine delivered a month ago and Had a buddy help me with the install. A little pricey but I’m totally happy with the way it turned out!

I think it's a lot classier look than the beak, and nicer even then the 2018+ front ends!

I'm a week or two away from pouring a test mould for reproducing these grilles from resin so we can skip OEM parts from the dealer. I'll post here for sure once I have them ready to take orders.
