Question Pre-Made Satoshi Grille Piece

ORIGINAL POST EDITS IN RED:
Would you be interested in converting your stock grille to a satoshi???
Don't want to bother with epoxy, bondo, or sandpaper & spray paint to do this:

I have looked into the possibility of manufacturing a pre-built inner grille that would replace the stock one and have the satoshi surround already done.
This will be a vacuum formed molded piece that will be a direct replacement of your stock center inner grille.
I have a connection to a local manufacturing plant and they have agreed to create this satoshi insert.
I'll only do this if I can offer them for $100 or less...and I now know that the final pricing for the insert itself will be no more that $95
(several details still need to be worked out with materials, but I'm confident in making this statement)

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a base model grill which is now on my truck:


As KPT so wisely figured out on his own, I am using my own Satoshi Grill as the Prototype for the build:


As you can see this insert WILL NOT have the Stock triangles built in. IF this is a game-changer for you then read no further.

I will separate the two sections tomorrow and deliver the Prototype to the manufacturer on Tuesday 3/22/11


MY TRUCK CURRENTLY LOOKS LIKE SH*T!!!

****ADDITIONAL INFORMATION****
1. I am Planning on offering Mesh to complete the grilles. 3-4 different styles based on what I can get from a local supplier.(meeting on 3/21) Looking at pricing for this Mesh at around $30-$40 to complete the insert (based on my own build experience)

2. I am planning on offering ON A LIMITED BASIS reduced depth inserts form those with lighting or URD TCAI fitment issues. (upcharge due to labor involved) $ ***TBD
***

3.
I will begin a new Thread Titled " Satoshi Insert Group Buy". The first production run will be for 50 inserts.

4. Actual Manufacturing process will take 7-14 days once the mold is created from the prototype and final sample of end product is approved and installed by me.

Guys & Gals, I'm really going out on a limb here to make this happen and plan on investing several thousand dollars in bringing this to a reality.
I am basing this off of the fact that in one week over 200 TW members showed interest in this concept and have been very supportive.
I will not be asking for ANY $ up front. (Thanks, but don't offer)

End Result: A Satoshi Mod that can be done with your own grill in just an hour or so for a great price!

Thank you!

also depends on the mesh used, ie hole size, colors, etc.

Would be interested provided it can work with my grillecraft.

I do not have patience to do the satoshi mod myself.
