Default Safest way to cut grille shell?

Hi. My x metal grille will be here this weekend and im wondering if this is a diy project or should i have it profesionally done? If i were to do it myself whats the safest way to cut it? Will the t rex grille provide coverage over the cut part? I imagine the paint has to chip??? Any suggestions are apreciated!

A dremel tool seems like it would work in this situation.

i would remove the whole grill & work on it where you can move around, like a truck bed, saw horses, work bench, kitchen table, well maybe not

if you don't get it done in a day or 2, you could still use your truck
measure twice, cut once

thanks guys heres the finished product, had to drill twice because we had no clamps and just held the grille into place, but I think it had more to do with the 2 cases of beer. Overall not bad. Painted the emblem and waiting for it to dry. Not sure I even want it on. what do you think????
