    My cousin has a body shop,so it made this alot easier for me. We used the plastic that we cut out of the grill insert to fill in the holes. We melted the plastic into the grill cool ass proscess. He says its a lot stronger and better to do it that way.

    We used a custom made tool he made that heats the tip of a screwdriver and it melts the plastic. Then you mold it to the opening

    Thanks Andy and TIMSR. Yes it is nice having the body shop. Put it this way i bought another grill(cause i saved money with my cousin being the body shop guy) bought the toyota FJ emblem from a tw user, so I spent about 50 for grill used, 63 for emblem & I got the body shop quality for nothing. I bet you my cousin will get me back though, like having to help him move or something lol. SO WORTH it for that grill. I will post pics next week when he is done. Painting tomorrow Ill post pics, and oh I forgot I bought the grill-craft for about 160 thats coming in tomorrow. Should be done tuesday. BTW Andy since our conversation through pm I'm trying to type better, and use correct punctuation

    The inside bevel looks seamless. That's going to turn out pro. Keep the pics coming.
