    Grill was about $55 shipped.


    You can buy a $5 sample pack of all there mesh, and they will credit it towards your purchase.

    Well, its done for the most part, but no grill mesh yet.

    Everything went pretty smooth, the paint isn't perfect, but its damn good. I was doing the job outside and into the evening, so a few bugs got on the paint. Its not bad, but in a few days Ill wet-sand and spray it in a booth at my work.

    Too dark to take pics now, first thing in the morning. But it looks great, so much cleaner looking.

    Still no grill, but looking pretty good. I need to find a rubber grommet to run along the back edge, and Im still not completely sure how Im going to attach the grill material.

    but here's some pics

    Looking good so far. Are you going to put the front plate back where it was, or fill in the holes and put it somewhere else?
