    Well got around to making a Satoshi grille this weekend. Wow that was a lot of work. Number one lesson learned...don't get fiberglass resin on your hands. Another lesson is if you think you're done sanding...you're probably wrong.

    Anyway it's for sale now because I killed the little bit of a budget I did have for it and now I'm hurting for cash. But you better believe that I'll be modding my spare (currently going back on my truck) as soon as I have the time and funds to do so.

    Not sure if it's cool or not to post a link for a sale in the general section. If it's against the rules I apologize but I might as well plug it while I'm telling my story and have your attention.

    Yeah it sucks, it looks so damn good on the truck but I spent way more than I should have. One thing that killed me is I had to buy a sander. I tried and tried to avoid it and do it by hand but there was no way I could have pulled it off.

    why did you need a sander as opposed to hand sanding?

    Never worked with bondo or fiberglass before so it wasn't the neatest application of either. Had to work a lot of it down and then do a few touch ups. Hand sanding just wasn't cutting it and I would still be out in the garage sanding had I not picked up a sander.

    The Bondo suprised me at how fast it hardened. I mixed it and double checked the area I was doing and when I went to scoop some out it was already starting to set up. That batch was trashed and I learned to work quickly with Bondo.
