    Got shipped into my workplace this morning, and installed it as soon as I got home. I have to say, I love this grill! It makes everything look really clean. (I did not do the Satoshi, I thought I'd stick with this for now.)

    While I had the grill out, I did do the horn re-locating mod and rattle-canned the radiator.

    Here's a shot of the front to show how well the rad paint worked:

    Thanks guys! I didn't get a lower grill because I had a $150 gift card from work for Amazon.com - just enough to get me an upper grill. I thought it would look ok without the lower for now, but maybe somewhere down the line I'll shell out for it. :D

    Personally, do you think it looks better with both?

    you didn't look very well, we've done 3 group buys for them, and I have one on my truck in the driveway haha.

    but i see you have a 96, they don't have them for those, they have the first gen's from 98 -04

    how hard was this grill to install? it looks great, I was thinking of doing a satoshi, but i like the looks of this. I can't tell from pics, could you place lights behind the grill and have enough light shinning out or is the mesh too tightly spaced?
