    Send one over. I'll blast it and hit it with some clearcoat.

    Crazy,
    did you "test fit" the grate yet? R&D has a nasty habit of providing parts that are warped as hell.

    I'd advise you put that puppy into the shoe, verify that it's not warped. Sand down any high spots, and go revisit your beautiful paint job.

    Grate looks great may I ask what you "Blasted" it with? I like the gray also. My buddy has a sand blaster. Is that what you used?

    Ain't that the truth. I used to buy parts from R&D years ago that were like that and I can see it hasn't changed.

    I did not test fit the grate, but I did think about that. I decided to go ahead with it anyway and grind and fit as needed when the time comes. Touching it back up is easy so I'm not too concerned. I do agree that it's working backwards but I will make it 100% in the end.

    Thanks for the compliment.
    I blasted it with 80 grit glass beads.
