Lightbulb Custom grille

I am thinking about making a custom grille out of galvanized sheet metal. I am thinking about making two of them one that has ranger cut out of it and then another with my name in it. Do you think it would look good? Im pretty handy when It comes to cutting. I use a plasma cam so it's all computerized anyway. Lol all I have to do is grind the backside down.

We're told not to weld galvanized because of the toxic fumes. Plasma any different? Stainless much better anyway. GO FOR IT. Let the world know there is a METZ on the loose.

Galvanized just has a sleek look to it and is less expensive compared to stainless. My only problem I'm seeing on paper is how I'm going to get the bend into it so its nice and round like the stock grille and then on mine the trim piece that's attached to the grille on top extends all the way across my headlights.

It's only money and you can always get more.

If it was easy, girls would do it.
