Talking Front Grill Replacement, 1994 Land Yacht

I have a new to me 1994 Airstream Land Yacht. It's in amazing condition inside, deep inside, and out. The only major thing is the front grill is damaged and needs replacing. My son who gave the Motor home to me looked all over California, to the best of his knowledge, for a replacement grill and had no luck. Does anyone here have any good ideas for finding that sort of part? Are they interchangeable with another year? I'd appreciate any helpful information. Kathy

My suggestion would be to go to a fabrication/welding shop and have them make a replacement grill from aluminum or stainless steel. May not be an exact match, but I would think they could make a neat, custom grill.

94 Land Yacht Grill

You didn't say how badly your grill is damaged. My grill was slightly damaged and broken in several place, but it was all there.
I was able to cut aluminum strips and pop rivet them to the inside of the surrounding grill "to bridge" the broken areas giving it back the rigidity it lost when broken. Looks OK now.

Front Grill Replacement, 1994 Land Yacht

I bought a 1993 Legacy that the previous owner rear ended another vehicle. I needed the entire front end but finding a replacement is just about impossible. I have managed to make repairs to the plastic and I bought some aluminum strips from Lowes. These strips are supposed to be used for window screen frames but it looks like it will look fairly close to original
