    Nothing to get excited about
    Always wondered if those would work. Do any reinforcement on the inside?

    Cool, let us know how many feet of cord you end up using. I want to wrap mine aswell as the door handles. Thanks.

    I followed a satoshi thread on here for the beginning phase. Cutting out the center and filling in all the gaps, sanding,priming, flat black painting.
    I basically did my own thing after that.
    Bought steel mesh from lowes,cutting it and formed it into the grill. I attached it using drilling screws with a washer head and went back to painting everything and finally like 6 layers of clear coat.

    I applied the letters using this glue called goop.
