    hey guys I'm looking into putting a new grill on my taco and I'm lookin for some info/advice. ive seen a handful of custom grills for sale but I think I could save some money doing it myself plus I think it would be a fun project. Wondering where the best place to buy a new grill is to work with (early 2nd gen model) and also curious what materials people use to back the grills, different kinds of mesh and whatnot. thanks for the help

    What are you looking to do? I have a custom homer taco grill I made (used for a year). I'd get rid of it, you just have to tranfer your painted or chrome grille fascia onto it. I'll post a pic tomorrow
    Go LI TACOS btw!
