    I just finished my satoshi grill with the grillcraft mesh. I am planning on relocating the horns and painting the radiator edges black I hope you guys like it.

    if you do alot of the work yourself then i would say about $250, with the cost of the grillcraft, if you got the grill from the group buy.

    it was simple enough, im pretty handy with the dremel and working with my hands so all was needed was to fiberglass, filler and sand, then take to the body shop to paint. I used Satin black paint for the interior area, and color matched the grille since it was chrome before. This chrome one was my stock grill, till i changed to the trd colormatched one, which i still have

    No, I used my stock chrome grill for this project and I have my trd colormatched grill that was still on the truck till i got this back from the body shop.

    I guess because the truck is so dirty that it makes the lights and skid plate look like they arent black, but thy already are.:D
