    Some inserts require cutting and drilling. I am working on making my own and wondering how some of these are attached. What is cut and drilled and how are they attached. For example, on a billet?

    I would like several examples if possible if there are a couple ways.

    I do know about the Satoshi and Jamoshi so nothing needed on that front.

    On the billet grille the whole inside gets removed, you cut off all the plastic. Basically you have a big hole. My grille attached with 4 screws with brackets, very very easy install.
    The hardest part was doing the cutting and sanding those areas down. Make sure to mask (tape) off the chrome, or painted areas (depending on grill shell).

    Interesting, I am kind of surprised that the billets require cutting out of the inside, I would have thought they just go over, but then again there isn't much room.

    Any other people have different ways an aftermarket grill insert is attached?
