    I searched, but idk if i was searching the right stuff.

    I want to know how hard it would be to make a Grillcraft type grill. (not satoshi) If i got the mesh from a place like customcargrills or a site like that would it be very hard to make one? I was also wondering how or where the grill craft grills screw into place without any screws showing on the outside of the grill. (I looked at instrustions on their site but couldnt figure it out.) Because it looks like the grillcraft ones just sit on top of the surround.

    Thanks!

    The grillcraft has tabs facing inward for the screws that hold it in place. It would look cool if you had a different style mesh, but for me it seems like too much trouble.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    It's cut very precisely, so I think it would be a little hard.

    haha, I think the grillcraft is worth it, I found mine for like $150, I can't remember where I ordered it though.
