looks good to me. if the cost was reasonable, i'll bet you could get a few more made up and sell them.

Looks good.

If I could actually still see my grill behind the winch control and driving lights I'd buy a grill like that... black anodized

You either have to look real hard or to fabricate stuff yourself like what you did, birdman.

You know you can have it patented or licensed out right? At least you can have some extra income with your effort from the project
