    PM sent. So it comes with the whole cha-bang correct, not just the grill insert? I want to be able to keep my current grill and replace with yours, so I can take it back to original if I ever need to.

    Any idea on how much it would cost to powder coat the frame from silver to black in your experience.

    Is that grille OEM or aftermarket? Is the $375 as you see it in the picture with the chrome surround?

    It is an aftermarket grill and yes, $375 as you see it.
    - I even have a box for it ready to ship :D

    Interesting then, because I see less than a $100 in materials, so trying to figure out where you the other $275 is coming from...

    Figure all you want. I spend a ton of time building these and my time is a valuable commodity that i have to put a price tag on.

    I believe it is a fair price for my work.

    The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali was done on a canvas worth about $5 with $20 in oils.:rolleyes: Just sayin'...Price is what the market is willing to bear for an item, and I believe Craig has been more than successful in what your eye fails to see.

    Bump for a quality piece..

    I never once questioned his "quality" of work, but HomerTaco already answered my question. The extra $275 is buying his time.

    Regardless of how nice the grille is, not sure why anyone in there right mind would knowingly and willingly pay nearly $400 for something that can be built in materials for less than a hundred bucks.

    Because not everyone has the time, knowledge, or skills to produce them.

    I would sooner cut of my right arm than try and cheat or price gouge someone on this forum.

    If you have any further questions or concerns please send me a PM and keep your negativity out of my f/s thread.

    See that's the beauty of America. He has the freedom to price the grille at whatever he think it's worth to him, and I have the freedom to express my opinion. Wasn't trying to smear your thread, I'm sure someone will be happy to have it on their truck.That is all, GLWS!
