    a few of you have posted your DIY cab results in some very interesting threads.

    I am interested in different GRILL options ofr DIY cabs. small hole, larger hole, black, chrome, diamond hole, large wire-square...

    what do you like, and even more so, whats out there?

    i like the chrome berg grills a lot. i also think the black large rectagle heavy mesh of the apostle cab (GB too?) looks cool.

    Try these guys.

    I've just done some searching around for different types of metal grilles in Australia. I found that doing internet searches for "perforated metal" and "expanded metal" will link you to all the business who sell this sort of stuff. The all seem to sell it in 8' by 4' sheets so unless you're comfortable cutting it and bending the edges over yourself, and are happy to hang on to the leftover metal for future cab projects, then the TCH guys might be your best bet.
