The difficulty is to do precision cut with all the nearby objects not being cut. It is a grille with 1/4" steel pipes, so when I am cutting one pipe, I don't want to accidentally cut into the next one in the wrong position. So it would need some small cutting tool, and securing it in a way that it cannot run into neighboring pipes on the same grille.
This company, and at least a few others too make the cutout so small that the pony emblem can only be seen properly from the exact front angle of the car. It is for the exact model year that I have. So I have to cut anyway.

An angle grinder would be way way too big.


I vote for a hacksaw (slow but reasonably quiet and safe) or Dremel with cutoff wheels. I say wheelS because they will wear down quickly. Buy the 20 or 50 pack in the little tube. Wear hearing protection.


You may have to do a combination.


Personally I would lose interest, but I am old and am starting to count my minutes.

It's just good practice to get into no matter what.

The small air tools are pretty easy to manage and there is a screw on them for adjusting the speed. Of course you can adjust at the compressor too by lowering outlet pressure.
