It will be painted. It is only going behind the five 3" holes in the skid I am making. So there won't be much to see.

Trust me, I have something that if it works will probably make you want to return that 1/2 sheet. I'll get it done tomorrow
Haha! Oh, well in that case mine will be done today!

Nope! I have never had an issue with it. I wouldn't run one without a metal skid, but if the valve is protected these things are awesome.

No, not yet. I don't know what is taking so long! I thought I would have it by now. I am hoping no later than the next few days, because I have a few days off coming up and planned the install then.

Lol, woops!

I thought I took one with it just laying in there, but that's not the one.

How are you going to get the sheet metal in there? I didn't take any measurements but I don't think the sheet metal is long enough to fit in there cleanly. Are you overlapping it or something?

Also, even with three coats of chrome paint and a coat of clear, I'm getting some rust on the grille. It might be time for a repaint :damn:

It only needs to cover the five 3" holes in the skid I am making, so I could technically use five pieces. It doesn't need to cover span the length of the grill.

Work in progress!

So you're not covering the lower radiator area?

Most of it will be covered by the skid. The holes are to allow airflow to the lower radiator. I will be using the 1/2" sheet to cover those holes to keep out stones and other crap.

Here I was thinking you were going to put it in the lower grille.

I've only seen one person do that so far and I think I know why. It's a 8itch to mount.
