Aftermarket companies should really jump on this. A front bumper add-on that matches the katana sword silver on the side profile would look great.

This is an image from the design concept boards of Nissan.

1959




We can see on the camo cars that they were able to tape across a specific space of the grill. That section of the grill probably has no air flow through it. Feels like that's a prime location.

1962





We can also see in the patent imagery that that part of the grill is indeed not intaking air.
1961

I have to think that mod will come out right away. Or maybe the NISMO model will get it.

Nice job. Interesting. For some reason I don't like it as much as I thought I would. Looks good but I think I still like the big grill better than this version.

Curious question about that center bar along the grille. Is it there as structural strength or can we drill holes throughout to allow for better air flow? I know the heat exchanger is going to be at the bottom where that hole is at. Imaging upgrading to a larger heat exchanger. You'll need a wider grille.

There's a reinforcement bar behind there like every car on the road. Opening up the grille will be pointless. Airflow will be plenty as is.

Oh duh. I forgot about the bumper shock absorber and bar that protects everything from frontal impact.
