Default Raptor Grille Adaptor Fabrication?

Does anyone know how I can make this adaptor to attach the Raptor grille to my regular F150 hood? I took this picture from another forum member that never completed it. Would it be best to start off with cutting my factory grille surround to the height of the Raptor grille then adding in some filler material? Or just taking it to an auto body shop to do? How could I do this myself?

That looks pretty cool, Paint to match the top. I'm sure someone good with metal fab could machine up some brackets.

[MENTION=138935]reider03[/MENTION] Are you making an adaptor to attach a factory raptor grille to the f150 or are you making a raptor-style grille for the f150?

I'm interested in an adaptor to attach a factory Raptor grille onto my regular F150 hood.

FYI guys, a raptor grille costs approx $600 on Tasca parts.
To get the adaptor custom fabricated, painted, and installed at a body shop would cost approx $400.
So you are looking at close to $1000 to get this done.

Ya, that's probably too expensive for most people.
