    I'm about to finish up a Color Matched Indigo Satoshi grill and want to know if there is any interest in it. I woud say starting price would be around $225 shipped.

    1. Color Matched Indigo Blue
    2. Custom made Satoshi (well built)
    3. Will include large TOYOTA emblem (this alone is $40) white in color

    Not yet complete just wanting to know if there is interest.......:D

    I will post pics of the grill when I get home. It's not complete but close.

    My final price would be for a completed grill. All you would have to do is remove the old one and install the new one. :D

    Believe me once you see it.......you'll be interested. :eek:

    I just like small projects, they keep me going.......I've made several grills and sold them on here (last one was the "unique style yoshi"). This one was going to be mine but after thinking about it I really want an ARB bumper and that thing will cover everything up. Almost to the point where it would be pointless to have a Satoshi. I think Satoshi are made to be shown off (without a Bumper). Besides I already have a color matched grill and I ordered the Devil Horns from MetalMiller so I'll be sporting that for a while. This grill has been worked on and off for 2 months. I finally started the finishing touches this past weekend. :D

    Drum roll........the pics! Still not finished, I still have some painters tape and I left that on too long so now I have to take off the sticky residue. I also have to buff out some small swirl marks on the painted part of the grill. You can't see them unless you are 2 inches from the grill (it has some small blemishes).

    Do you guys think the emblem looks centered and would it look better off (no emblem), the way it is (with emblem), color-matched emblem or small Chrome white/red TRD on the bottom right corner?

    I'm thinking that I might offer that option (trade in old grill) and might go down in price. I like making these things, it's kinda fun. :D

    Well I'll probaby go at it again this weekend. I'm considering painting it again if the buffing doesn't work, the little swirl marks bother me. :mad:

    i honestly think $225 plus trade your old grill, plus shipping is fair. i did mine and i found it cumbersome, and i'm a DIYer. non DIYers should be more than willing to pay that much and trade in their old grills. hell, after all that work, i'd be willing to pay that much and trade in my old grill.

    you can prep it for paint and just wait for your next customer to request the color. once you receive their grill and $$, paint away and ship it off to them.
