    @Krunch, will be custom painted with detailing to match the exterior design, and insert socket head screws around the openings

    @Cheaps, yees.

    Here is photos while Milling the front 480 radiator grill bezel from 1.5" thick block of 6061 billet. The backside has been hollowed out, to save weight. the design was inspired by jet engine intakes.

    Thanks Mr. Owen! :p

    Wish I had the funds to do a crazy build like this - My prodigy build log will be up in a bit, like I said, nothing major, but a nice little build imho.

    If you guys are looking for shops around the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, let me know. I have contacts for at least 5 machine shops as well as numerous shops that will form, paint, plate, weld etc. that I use on a nearly daily basis.
