    I am looking into getting a new grille. I am a little confused on what my options are. I will be going with a mesh one, but after looking at other posts it seems the only options are Grillcraft or Satoshi? What exactly makes a grille a Satoshi grill? are they any mesh grilles I can buy without cutting metal? I am a college student living in an apartment and do not have tools or a garage to work in. If ya'll have any tips for me I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you!

    i looked up the instructions on the grillecraft grille (i just orderded it yesterday).. it claims you can bolt it on without cutting your grille.. mine wont be here until Wednesday so youll probably find a definate answer on that before i can prove it. If you find it on ebay through 'billetanything' they have instructions and pictures there.

    yeah, im figuring it will look crappy, im 99% decided on cutting the bars out, painting the charcoal inside black and painting the radiator flat black

    ya i saw another thread with that.. i think im just gonna cut mine rather than having a full out aftermarket grille and then having to get it painted, mine is already color matched with the charcoal center. and i hate aftermarket 'Body Parts'
