    Hey Guys,

    Question...

    I am going to do my own version of a Satoshi Grille, and was thinking about putting lights behind it.
    Do any of you (who have this setup, or who know about it...) know if putting 2x 6" lights behind the Satoshi Grille, will limit the air to the radiator, and create heating problems, or anything like that?

    Cheers

    i've got 2 6'' lights behind mine, and as before i put them there, my temp needle has never moved in 35,000 miles. i tow a 6,000 lb boat every weekend over the summer as well, so there is still plenty of flow.

    Owen let me know when you are doing it, I want to swing by and check it out. I plan on putting 4 lights behind mine after I can get a custom bracket made and want to get some hands on experience :)
