Default 90-93 ACCORD grill help

I saw some 90-93 accords with different grills. I was wondering where I can get custom grills, I want this mainly so it can let more airflow in the engine bay. I have seen some that are just all black and open in the center. Anyone have any ideas or know anywhere I can get these grills? Thank you.

Why do you need more airflow? So your engine can get dirtier? Cooling shouldn't be a problem with your car. Unless you're Fi or something.

Anyway, that ***** all over Ebay.

just take it out then. or hit up a junkyard for a replacement. A grill from any 4th gen will fit.

Hit up Ebay for aftermarket ones...

sorry, I'm a 5th gen guy. If you're scraping it... then just rip that **** out... otherwise wait for a 4th gen dude's repsonse.

Go to Home Depot or Somewhere And buy some mesh and a bottle of black spray paint. It should slip over the other grill.

Im gonna go ahead and call your bluff on worrying about air flow. You want a grill that looks better than what you have now, but dont want to admit it on here because people with retarded comments about how it doesnt help performance with say crap. Ive been there myself, but they dont bother me.

once you unscrew the 4 screws there are 2 clips one on each side you need a small screw driver to pop them out. i think the clips are inbetween the screws on each side

ok, what do you think if i sand the chrome off and paint the whole grill black? (and possibly take out the plastic in the center) and leave the emblem, what do you think? i will use the import oem paint for the 92 accord ex to match of course. thanks.

actually there is a little more to be said. there are absolutley no aftermarket grills at all (fro 90-93 that is). Make your own. heres mine I just cut out the middle and then used some bondo. you could also get a 90-91 grill which all it has in the middle is the H and that is less work to do. sorry its a bad angle, but you get the idea.
