    Thinking about doing a Satoshi grill and I'd like to paint the radiator. Did you remove it to paint or just mask off and do it while it was still in?

    Thank you

    Lol I didn't mask or remove anything. Just took the grill off and blasted it with high temp paint.

    I just sprayed like crazy all in there. Tried to avoid the radiator as much as possible and just hit painted surfaces.
