    Thanks to Buck (BondXII) for the tips and pics on his install. I was at the point where I wanted to sell my billet grill install but once I saw their setup I decided it looks way better recessed than normal. I realized that I'm not as good with bondo as I use to be so I can see the imperfections through the paint which is gonna bug the hell out of me but it will do for now till I fix it.

    I really wanted to but the billet triangles were a little too small to do it. If I can find a different way to mount them then I definitely will.
