Please see the pictures, how are these grill covers made?

You buy the metal sheeting wth the holes in it
Cut it out in the same shape as the hole it will be placed it + ~0.25 inches
Fold the 1/4" outside edge down and cut where it overlaps
Fasten them to the hole they fit in somehow.
Hope they do their job when the time comes.

I wish I could provide more information, but I have never made custom grills.

Looks to me like they built a piece that fits the inside of the of the kick. That must be done w/a router to make it fit nice. Then covered it in grill clothe. It's a matter of making positive and negative copies of the jig you cut out to fiberglass into the kick panel area.

I doubt this makes a whole lot of sense, sorry. It's actually pretty easy to do though if you've got a router. I think it looks soooo much better than using the factory speaker grills.
