I was kidding about the gains....I used a disc sander. Its a lot faster. Be prepared for a mess. I finished off the rough edges by hand using different files. Once installed, you'll never see any imperfections.Yeah, your guys thread from a year or so ago is the motivation behind the GT grill for sure. I think you GOTTA be into the looks if you're gonna spend money on this. The gains you are talking about are comparatively minuscule for precise measurement, no? If I do get it, I think I would hollow out all the honeycombs, but stop short of cutting out the "entire fang triangle" at the end of the grill.
This is what I have for sanding. Will this work? You guys started with 80 grit and went to 120? I want to be sure before I ruin the back of the grill. Thanks!!

The Velossa tech waerehouse/showroom is actually in Hollywood, FL which is not too far from me (45 min?). I was planning on going down there today, and had arranged it with him, but he shot me an email telling me he wasn't feeling well and that we could try for next week. I'll definitely have some pointed questions for him when I go.
