Aftermarket grills

It's a longshot I know but does anyone know of Maverick or Comet aftermarket grills, or would they have to be fabbed up? My last one was in mediocre shape and very brittle; it replaced the original that came with the car and disintegrated in my hands the first day I got the car. I like the look of the stock grills with the slots, but has anyone ever made their own and what did you use?

Looks really nice! Since I eventually want the CF Maverick Grabber hood for my Comet this may indeed be the way to go! Thanks for the link
