Hey Craig, Ive just cut out my grille and im trying to plan out the mesh insert. My question is, are you folding the mesh over the lip? Or are you inserting it?

I intend to bend it around the opening from behind & attach the way I always do - with zip ties... Had to use the "mounting tabs" this time due to the "one piece" grill design.
Once I wrap this up I'll post it for sale.
I will NOT be making another.
ever.

Yes, the grill itself is not expensive. It's the time & aggravation.
I've got hours & hours into this one - just like the 99" I did for Lisa.
I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Now I want it out of my sight!

Oh I know buddy. I'm not looking forward to redoing mine at all, but it needs doing. Eventually.

It'll be fine. Hence why I wanna order a spare (even though I have my stocker and my satoshi one both). So I can spend the hours on it here and there and not be too concerned about it. who knows though when I'll get rolling on it. I have a welder now and some projects in mind, including an idea on a product I want to potentially start producing for the market soon
