DIY: Grill(e)
 
Mmk...

I'd like to do a grill similar to what Nate did, the diamond metal. i know I can get it power coated for cheap... but, my question is...

do i have to CUT the current black grill part off?

Just cut the vertical and horizontal bars and then screw in my new pieces?

any input would be awesome!!

Yeah but only 1 of the write-ups shows him cutting it.


i JUST got back from home depot...

2 metal pieces, dark gray automotive primer, and "hammered black".... looks kinda powder coated.

i may do it tomorrow and do a small write-up, even though I know people have done them.

i ALMOST bought another color instead of black. i was about to buy like a dark blue but i decided i didnt have enough balls haha

all the wires are now covered by the black wire cover ropes... as well as the LEDs are perfectly straight, no curves. so the picture is a TAD bit off... but, yeah

Looking good.Where did you get the light strips from? And how did you set it up?

Re: DIY: Grill(e)
 
from ebay. it was a pain getting some that matched.

then....

built a lighted switch into my center console
connected the strips together
ran the switch wires through my firewall
bought a power distributor
connected distributor to the battery and the light to the distributor

and then flip the switch


irf did a great write up on it

searh "Led brow" and it'll come up
