Billet Grille Installation

I just bought a Billet Grille. It is the type where you cut out the black and keep the outer chrome shell. Im not looking forward to cutting on my grille at all. Any advice? What tool to cut with. I have access to a semi-truck garage. Thanks

I have seen both styles where you cut and where you dont cut. Cutting them really isnt bad just cover it in painters tape and then make your lines on top of that. As for drinking a couple beers first make sure you stop after a couple, Ive seen body work done after quite a few and it wasnt pretty, but it was a only a dodge.
