Lightbulb Brilliant !!! Satoshi Grill Emblem Answer: Converted into Mod Write-Up W/ Pics

EDIT: I've recently (12 Feb, 2011) completed a Satoshi Grill Horn Relocation Write-Up.
For aesthetics, you should relocate your horns if you do the Satoshi Mod.

Also added My Backspacing/Offset Drawings in the "Wheel & Tires" forum

And my only use for Plastidip, so far

TOYOTA EMBLEM - SEPARATED LETTERS:

What You See, is Not What You Get....................Off The Shelf.

OEM TOYOTA Emblem, Radiator/Grill - Toyota Part 75311-90K00 (1986 Toyota Land Cruiser Emblem) from Toyota Parts Zone.com
Purchased 1 April 2010 for $41.49 Shipped. Found Here:

http://www.toyotapartszone.com/1986/...ame-plate.html

Been trying to find time to post pics and a write up.

Short Story ?: Emblem = 1 Piece

EDIT: Moved "Cut Letters Apart" Procedure, Down Three Procedures
Sorry, Just Answered a Question About Letters Not Being Crooked.
Now I Know Why He Asked


Fill Voids in Back of Emblem Letters (Flush) with Epoxy.

Mark Letter Backs while Taped in Position on Mesh
(Leave the Painters Tape Outline in Place and Somehow Mark the Mesh Holes where the Screws Go.
I Marked around Each Hole with Black Magic Marker, It Showed Up a Deep Blue/Purple around each Hole when Mounting )

Drill (On Press with Depth Stop) and Tap (with Bottoming Tap) for 4-40 Stainless Steel Screws. Three Screws each Letter, Four in "O's".

Cut Letters Apart, Cut Out Centers of "O's" and Triangle in "A". File Edges to Match Bevel, and Sand.

Sand, Spray Prime, Spray Paint Black, Couple Coats. (I Also Sanded, Primed, Painted, and Seal Coated Backs of Letters)

DO NOT DO THIS: BRUSH Paint Silver Outline With Small Brush (It's Taking to Long, Rushing, Patience is a Virtue) Doh!

Do This Instead: Tediously Tape Off to Spray Paint Silver Outline (Just the Rabbited Step)
EDIT: Or Use a Paint Pen

Spray Clear Coat X 3 or more

Screw to Grill Mesh from Behind as follows (from Screw Head)

Screw Head / #4 SS Lock Washer / #4 SS Washer / #6 Plastic Washer / Mesh / #00 Rubber Faucet Washer / Letter - Don't Over Torque

That's the Short Story, Hope I Didn't Miss Anything

BTW I Don't Take Credit for the Separated Letters TOYOTA Emblem, This is a variation of Similar I've Seen on TW. "Search". I'd have to go back and find the member(s) that are due the credit. I Will If I get around to a Write Up

EDIT: Thanks to everyone for your positive comments.
Hope your creativity has been unleashed
Don't forget to post pics of your grills when you get them done

TIME, Our Most Precious Commodity.

Final Product:








The Process:















Yeah, I Know. Maybe Shoulda Cured the Epoxy Longer.
It Appears to Have Lost It's Bond Around the Drill Hole
(Happened While Being Drilled. Tapping Didn't Improve It!)
It's The Reason I Sealed the Backs. More Sanding on Back Mighta Helped
I've only gone 100 Miles or So, But They Haven't Loosened At All

EDIT: Couple thousand miles now, with no loosening














Sorry, No close-Ups allowed





















Thanks for lookin', hope it helps ya.

Looks great.....I am astonished that you got all those bolts to line up correctly so that none of the letters are crooked.

Without a doubt the most outstanding job I have ever seen posted. If you plan to open up your own Taco Mod Satoshi shop please let me know, I would be the first one in line to have you do it.

Also that looks like a "plastic dip" type mesh. Where did you get that? It is also outstanding.

UNCUT Emblem - Fill Back With Epoxy
Center & Tape To Grill Mesh As One Piece.
Mark Back of Letters With Awl for Hole Locations
Mark Each Hole In Mesh Being Used For Screw
Leave Tape On Mesh
THEN Cut & Process The Letters.
They Go Right Back Where The Marks in the Mesh Are
They'll Go Back As If Still One Piece
Quite Simple, Just Time Consuming

The "Brilliant" was Referring to Answering One of Those Questions to Which There Is No Short Answer, And Realizing, I'd Just Finished a "How To" Write Up With Pics and Then Posting It As The Write Up I Had Wanted To Do.
