Time for an update...

Here is the prototype mesh... I was finally able to work out the slots for the smaller letters. This was very difficult due to my equipment limitations.



Here is my next obstacle:



As you can see the bottom of the grill has a very pronounced outward bow. On the Tacoma grills I can simply modify the cut of the surround to accept the flatter mesh but with this I need to make the mesh fit the surround as is or I'm stuck.

I cannot simply bend it this way since the slots make the mesh very rigid.

Here is what I get when I try to make it conform:



Tough to see but the back of the slotted section is buckling...

This is going to take a while longer to work out I'm afraid...

Bear with me.

Hopefully you can start up on a 4th gen again in the near distant future. Look forward to seeing more of these being made for 4runners (taco owners cant have all the fun now).

Sir, your 5th Gen 4runner grille modification is looking great. I love the look of the Raptor Style Grille.

Any new update on this grille. How did the finish product turn out.

If you decide to put it into production, I would like to get my name on the list for a special order on one of these. Thanks.
