I know a number of folks have installed lights behind satoshi and grillcraft grills.
It makes for a very clean look - one that I like.
But it seems that -- much like with a slatted "shade structures" blocking the sun and providing partial shade -- that grill's gonna block a bunch of light. Light that I potentially paid mucho-denero to throw down the road as far as the eye can see.
I searched, but no one seems to have made any kinda comparison.
How much light is lost when lights are behind the grill instead of in front of it? Anyone got any comparison pics?
EDIT: installed two 7" kragen HIDs behind grillcraft black MX mesh. Skip ahead to post 19 below to see results.
