    Ordered a grill from Parts Geek to make my own Satoshi but wondered if anyone else bought one from them and how is the quality.

    I got mine this week and have been working on my Satoshi today. I suppose the quality is fine, but it's not exactly the same quality as an OEM piece. The plastic seems quite a bit more brittle and cheap but it's turning out just fine.

    I'd be curious over time if they get more brittle.

    I went the fiberglass route. 1/4" hex bolts w/ one nut under the FG to keep the bolt level then a lock washer and another bolt to hold in the mesh

    How is the grille coming out? I got mine in yesterday and cut it out today. Ill finish this weekend but so far so good. I dropped the truck off at the shop to get lifted.
