    I am wanting to do the Satoshi grill mod in the next few weeks and was wanting to know where everyone is getting the grill material from?
    I want the small diamond or hex material. Also how big of a piece do I need?

    I got a 4'x8' sheet of expanded metal from Eagle National Steel, in Hutchins, TX - straight out on 20, south of Dallas. Whole thing cost $25. It's a diamond mesh pattern. I live in south Arlington. I could cut you a 4'x 4' sheet if you wanted it. No worrie$, I'm not doin anything else with it. Message if you want it.
