    Sell the grill craft and just go get lowes mesh instead for $20... looks the same or better... and you still have to cut the grill anyway >.>

    i have little talent when it come to this crafty stuff and my truck is not the cleanest but this is pretty easy. It was my first time using a fiberglass repair kit and bondo but i was easy. take your time and do it, looks tons better. DO IT.

    Cut the majority out using a sabre saw or sawsall. Cut from the back, making sure the blade is not angled out toward the outside. Leave a good half inch all the way around if you don't want any scratches.

    Finish cutting with dremel from front. Use one of those fiber reinforced wheels, and take your time. A small hand file and sanding block will help for the final touches.
