Please Help with Tips on Grill Craft Install

My Grillcraft Mesh Grille will be here on Thursday and wanted to start gathering what I may need for the install. I was wondering what is the best thing to use to cut out the center on my stock grille?

What kind of saw should I use? Any photos and tips you guys may have would be really helpful..

Thanks For any Help

Just getta saw with a fine blade...like a pvc saw would be perfect. And maybe some fine grit sand paper so its smooth and finished (not that you'll see it)

I just used a cordless Reciprocating Saw to do mine, turned out good. Just take your time and remember to paint your rad if you want that all black look.

I will be painting the A/C Condenser when it warms up around here...

Any recommendation on what black spray paint to use?

Do I have to use High Heat paint on the A/C Condenser?

I used a close quarters hacksaw (google it) and it worked great since the plastic is pretty soft and the Dremel just didn't fit well.

As for paint, what I and quite a few others on here, use flat black BBQ paint. Not sure if the high-temp part is required or not, but better safe than sorry.
