    Got done with my satoshi the other day and thought I would share! I will get some pics of it on here with it on my truck tomorrow. I really think it turned out well and different than most peoples on here! I also thought I would share how I put on the mesh. I went to Lowe's and got some mirror hangers and used epoxy to glue them to the edge. Then I just got some bolts and nuts that would fit through the mesh and was able to tighten them down as much as I needed to get them tight. That mesh aint going anywhere! Hope you like it!

    Props for doing something different. Looks good but I think it would look even better with the lower grille done too. And good idea using mirror hangers. I might try that when I make my satoshi.

    Nice work doing something a little different. Did you spray the grille yourself or take it in to a shop?

    Thanks. I did all the work myself and it was the first one I ever done. I bought a basic grille off of partsgeek.com and used the color match paint from O'reillys. I was worried about how the paint would turn out, but it looks really good and I also put about 4 coats of clear coat on it too! After doing bondo work for the first time, I have decided that I love doing this kind of stuff and wish I could do it for a living. :D

    My "future" plans are to put a 3 inch lift with some 33's, and Dick Cepek DC-2's. I think I'm going to stick with the silver/black look for the whole truck.

    Was looking at some pics of my truck with the Satoshi, and I almost think I need to put the factory skid plate back on. What do you all think?
