    Thinking about buying a grill craft grille and was wanting to get it installed. Kinda nervous about cutting the center portion of my grill out myself...

    Its not too bad cutting it. A dremel is a great tool for it. You could buy the tool and do it yourself for cheaper than paying someone. Then you would have it for other uses.
    If you are not up to it check out Mobile Sound Systems on Cooper in Arlington. They mostly do audio but have done many other projects.

    I just installed mine about a month ago and it is pretty easy. Bought the saw below and it worked great:

    The directions that they come with are detailed enough that you can do it. It is easier than you think. Took me about an hour to do everything and went slow.

    Make sure to paint the radiator as that makes a big difference.

    Don't waste your money on getting a grill installed. It takes ~2 minutes to remove the grill. it's 2 screws and 2 plastic tension pins then lift.

    I took the plunge and did my grille replacement last weekend, extremely easy to do and very hard to mess up. Like others have said, don't waste your money on someone else to do it. I ordered my grille piece from customcargrills.com ( they also have a good walk-through) and picked up some auto goop at O'Reilly's. Having a rotary style cutter like a dremel makes it cake.
