    It's been planned for a long time. I originally planned on mounting lights behind the grille and I was going to relocate them then. But the plan for the lights has continually evolved. One day I will get around to it. LMAO

    I like it. It's different.

    You could play with it a little, like maybe pushing it to the far left, off-center. But it can stand the way you imagine it.

    that's funny...the original design i sent to metalmiller WAS off center. i'm working on grinding some bevels into it and after that, it probably will just work all by itself without the old emblem on top. we'll see.

    well, the grille is finally done but the emblem still need a lot of work. here are a couple of options for the final job. definitely need to spray some black paint behind the grille and i guess those horns DO need to get out of the way.

    None - yet...
    I'm interested in a custom emblem as well. I sent metalmiller a PM a couple days ago, but haven't hear back.

    Should i be concerned, or is he a busy man that will get back to me when he has some free time.

    Just wondering...

    well, he does seem pretty stinkin' busy but generally he would get back to me within around 3 days or so. i wouldn't worry.

    I pm'd him this morning and back and forth 3 times today no problem. It was regarding an existing design however (SantaCruz) so maybe that's the difference. Sounded like he would have it done this week and ready to ship.
