I prefer not having the grills or foam in from fo the ribbon, it's a little brighter without it.

Hmmm, this was a fellow forum member offering up his spares, not some web site. I'll have a look later on tonight to see if I can find what I was talking about.

Re: AL-III's foam grill?

Thanks fellas, I sure like the look with the no foam, thats something I should have thought of. Heck i have been watching it dissapear for years worrying what it will look like with out the foam. Now what to do with the lil gold emblem? maybe cut the tabs and glue it arround the origonal location?
