    homertaco was working on one you bolt in... but issues came about. He sells mesh tho. timsxr of black diamond fab sells bolt in mesh (hex style). But if your afraid to tackle the fiberglass stuff your self cut the grille and take it to a boat shop or body shop were there is alot of custom fiberglass work anyway. I'm sure it wont be much.

    haha. yeah i know thats why i said it. i new someone would come along and point it out or make it sound worse or something. and yeah i don't know if i like the flat or the one that he bends to look kinda like the factory one. and how hard are the little triangles i guess you'd call them on each side. how hard are they to cut out? i want to do it all the main (middle) the little thing on the out side of the middle by the head light and lower. on lower i had an idea on making a custom paint job. well kinda. like have it black. and than in another color say something els. for example "HONDA" or something. i i ride dirt bikes allot well try too as much as i can.

    yeah im going to look around and see if i can get one. and would a drimel be my best bet for cutting?i know it may take longer because they get really hot kinda fast. but i can use one pretty good and dad has one.

    ok i may do something like that. idk well see. when the time comes. lol i'm just pissed right now truck got keyed yesterday. (got pic in my gallery) and i think it has to be someone i know. i talked to 2 cops i know and they both said the same thing it is most likely some one know. but mom and dad will be back from the beach to night. may see about talking to a manager at wall mart and seeing if anyone els reported to them about there cat getting keyed. i don't think that is the case tho! and i know it a truck but i want to take good care of it. if i was of roading it it was from a branch i would not be so pissed. and i have had the truck like 3 weeks!

    The cutting isn't to bad, it is the bondo and sanding that is a pain. I am selling them now. Parts Geek Grill, triangles cut, half or full depth, painted or not painted and your choice of mesh. Unfortunately, It would be July before I could get to do some more.

    Depending on the mesh, price changes, but generally 190 plus shipping for no paint, add 125 for 2 layer paint, 150 for 3 layer paint

    I found the painting part the hardest. I couldn't get it right. I wanted it black so I just bought some spray on bed liner and it worked great :).
    Not the best picture but you get the idea. I think I'm mounting it on the truck as soon as my sister leaves from her vacation here.
