    What do you guys think of this for a satoshi grill? Hexagons are about 3/4" across, pretty sturdy too. It is a 1970's screen door protector at my brother's house. I think it might be cool/different.

    make sure you get it centered or it'll look pretty bad

    It was actually his idea (he has a '09 double cab so he knows the grills, i have into'ed him to the sight), and said to turn it 90 degrees. I told him hell no to the 90 degree adjustment. But maybe the grill.

    I think the material is so thin that you woulnd't even be able to tell there's a grill at all from over 20 feet away or so.

    Looks quite thin and it just doesn't look like it blocks enough for me. It will really open up the radiator and has a chicken wire kind of look. :(

    I have to agree it does look a bit thin. Since you already have the material you can try it out and see what it look like. If you dont like it just change out the mesh. I've been thinking of re-modifying my grille using the woven mesh.
    http://www.sfxperformance.com/parts/APSA70002N.htm# if you want custom try some of the tuner sites they always have grille material for their bodykits.

    Agree with being too thin and too transparent to hide the radiator..etc... Different but I really think with the screen material, it will cause way too much resistance while driving that it will collapse cruising down the highway..Besides that, you know how often you have to clean it to get the bugs out of the screen? Just trying to save you the trouble because once you cut for a satoshi, there's no turning back..Good luck..

    Try to test it a little. Put it down on the ground about 25-30' and try to trow some small stones at it. If you consider that provides enough resistance ???, Hey, is your truck. Just remember that the trucks, on the Highway, are trowing the stones at you a lot harder. It is definetelly different and I, personally, think that is OK to be different.
