    So I am looking at getting a billet grill and was wondering what are the pros and cons of stainless vs. aluminum? Does the polish last longer on the stainless, and does the aluminum bend a little easier than the stainless?

    Not sure what the pros and cons are but I got aluminum billet grills and they bend pretty easily. I mean you need to put some weight into it but it ain't bad. They came polished silver but I painted them black.
