Does anyone know where to source this crash bar?

I'm going to replace the grill with a big mesh, but don't like the idea of exposing the ugly OEM crash bar. Browsing around for ideas, I came across the picture below. I really like this look, and am hoping I can buy this crash bar somewhere. I did lots of searching, but couldn't come up with everything. Perhaps it's custom?

Never seen that before, but I doubt it would hold up in a crash as effectively as the OE bar.

Why not just paint the OE bar a flat black?

More then likely custom, i'd look at companies that produce bash/drift bars to see what they offer.

Yes that looks cool, its probably custom but if you remove your factory front bumper and get in a accident on the street your insurance company is proably going to deny your claim if they can make a argument that you modified a factory safety device and someone got hurt because of this.

Just saw that same car this morning! Love the “halo” mesh. Think it would nicely compliment the GC’s body lines.

If its street driven, stick with OEM.

You could always "speed hole" the OEM crash bar. Would look purposeful behind the mesh. And that red bar, Sir, is definitely a custom drift bar setup. Pretty inexpensive piece to have made, really. Again, probably best to leave safety structures alone. LOL, you've been warned

Not sure about the bar, but If you’re going with a full mesh, add the new Genesis emblem on the hood for even better look (the smaller one, oem part 86320G9000)

I sure it will hold up fine... but if it's intentionally bowed the way I think it is, It's going to push the frame rails out, in an head on.
frame damage = totaled
