Ok this is cool. But I want a curve in it! Let's do that, go to the command panel (Modify, the one next to the mouse pointer.) Select your grille. and in the command you will see, Modifier List. Press it, and you get a whole list with stuff, search for FFD 4x4x4. Now you will see Editable Poly and FFD 4x4x4, Press the + in front off FFD 4x4x4. You get 3 options now, select Control points. And now make that curve. Do it only with Fully selected left/right side. Or those two Fully selected middle.

Tweak it to make the best curve, not like this one above.
