    All,

    I'm looking to buy an assembled Satoshi grill, doesn't need to be painted though. I can match it to my truck's color, but I just don't trust my fiberglass, etc. skills enough to attempt unless there isn't another option.

    If you're willing to undertake this for me, I'd be very grateful. Just send me a PM, smoke signal or whatever works for you with the details on how you'd like to work it out!

    Appreciate it guys, thanks for your time.

    If you would be able to do that, I would really appreciate it man. Just name your price. I'm not in a rush either, so if you'd be willing to do it, take whatever time you need.

    Definately. Like I said, see if you have any luck in a couple of days. There is also a guy on here that has a "satoshi service". You ship your grille to him, he does the work and ships it back. Not knocking on him but mine turned out spoon much better. Compared side to side with my friends. I'll do it for whatever he charges if you can find it. Lemme know if you want better pics too.

    Thanks for the information. Like you said, I'll keep checking this thread for another few days to see if anyone else offers as well. I've been researching this for about a month now, trying to figure out options for how to do it. Blackhawk, the guy who did the "Satoshi service," has not been doing them because he's gone for several months it seems. He then referred everyone to a group buy that was a similar deal, but that group buy was recently cancelled. So that's why I ended up just posting this up.

    The price I found from the thread for blackhawk88's service was $225 + shipping for color-matched grill itself. Not sure about the rest of it Just let me know if that works or if it doesn't sound right for you.

    If you have any pictures of yours, I'd love to see it. Again, thanks for your time and help with this so far.

    That looks great man! I'm ready to move forward if you want to, looks like you did an outstanding job with it. I'm willing to pay for your extra grill because it's already white as opposed to my chrome one as well as because I'm in VA so not having my grill for a while between far shipping and the fabrication would be an issue. Once I get it though, I would be happy to ship you my chrome one in return so that you have another one in stock that would just need painting.

    Feel free to send me a PM with your information and payment preferences!

    Hey guys sorry to jump into your conversation and I saw your work on that grille and looks great. Was hoping maybe you can do a satoshi grille for me. Please let me know if you can help me on this. Thanks
