    Has anyone used THIS grille mesh for a satoshi? It's about half the price of the custom car grilles mesh and of course waaaaaay cheaper than grillecraft. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    I'm tempted to try this grille mesh. I really want the small perforated mesh from CCG, but $26 shipped is hard to pass up. But I need to find out if it's painted or powder coated first.

    I used this mesh for my project n it came out good I ordered the black mesh but gave it another 2 coats of some black satin just to but it came out really good I have pics of it but I'm on my phone. I suggest using it if ur going for a cheaper satoshi mod its not a hard decision between $100+ or -$30 shipped

    It's cheap material. got mine in the mail today. I'm using it for my bumper cause I already have the grillcraft upper and this is by no means as good as grillcraft material
