    I'm not too sure about thin lip... The way these mount to the front end is not even conclusive to a Satoshi Mod without MAJOR alteration... :(

    Here is the difference between stock (the black grill on the bottom) and Satoshi:

    You got from a total of 7 post mounts to 5... without a test subject I can't speak to the effect it will have of the structural integrity of the grill...:(

    I am an idiot because I accidentally made the triangles out of M1 mesh and this in M4... :frusty:

    And this is NOT for sale until I can test fit it. That will not be for a while because I am on vacation next week... :sorry:
    Thank you,

    Anxious to see what the satoshi would look like mounted up and what not.

    More interested in a thin lip, though..

    It really doesn't affect it at all. It's still solid.

    Yeah... I'll reach out when I get back from Florida & we'll meet for lunch and test it out. :thumbsup:
    Thanks Jeff! That TTora thread was a good read. I believe now that the missing mounts will not be an issue. I still need to test fit this before I can comfortably produce them... I have another chrome one that is JDMcQ's and that is already formed - I just need to complete the mesh.
    I also have two in storage in the shop that are set up for color matching. I'll work out a cost on that... It may be higher due to the fact that these are much bigger parts than the 2nd gens they are used to getting from me. :notsure:

    I'm sorry this took so long to release... I've been concentrating on the 2nd Gens so long that I lost track of these... :(

    I also still have that bitch grill I finished - the 95-97.... Still for sale :pout:

    Man looks sick. I'll be ordering a color matched one whenever they are available.

    I can feel it already... This one's going to be epic!!! :amen: :oldglory: :headbang:

    Craig, you may need to start a full-time business and train some peeps to do your work. It's got the hallmarks of an enterprise written all over it.

    FWIW.

    You are one of many folks that has suggested to me that I expand... I appreciate the support but the truth is that my primary career is not making grills. I would not feel comfortable hireing out the work because then it is not MY grill... I build each one of these with a specific person in mind as they are produced. I do not use computer generated shipping labels I address each item I ship by hand. When someone orders a grill from me they get a product that I made. I know there is a lot of demand and I could do more with assistance. I believe in quality over quantity. :D
