Thread: The Dimple

Brand spankin' new, never used, R&D 800 intake grate. Right out of the cardboard and plastic. What am I supposed to do with this? Use it, send it back to R&D, toss it in the garbage? Note the dimple.

Personally if I was running an 800 grate, I would send it back and get one of Jerry's stainless grates

I have seen quite a few dimple grates fail, and some without dimples too...
R&D and a few other suppliers only have this latest nightmare in stock, so I doubt you will get anywhere with them... oh and if you call them and ask about the dimple, they will act like they don't know what you are talking about.
I have one that has a dimple and it has somehow stayed together, but that dimple is right where they usually crack (conveniently). IMO its not worth the gamble Steve, especially at 79+.

Thanks guys. It's either going back to R&D or the trash. It wouldn't be right to sell it and I won't risk my neck, especially with the stainless version coming my way soon.
It actually looks like R&D filed or sanded over the dimple area for some reason. Oh well.
