    I have two stupid questions:

    Will the OEM Toyota Logo fit back on the Grill-Craft? (not that I want it, but one from Metal Miller would be nice and I believe he uses the same notches/fittings).

    What is the difference in a standard grillcraft install like this one and a "satochi" grillcraft install?
