Going back to Gamers pics, it looks like you can fit the little tiny round Lego Pieces they use as Lights to fill the holes. They come in all sorts of colors so it might be a cool thing to add to cover the holes. It popped into my head because I was doing Legos with my kids for almost 3 hours yesterday. LOL

I'm sure there are other things you can use to fill them in as well if they bother you.

Lego pieces like that idea still haven't finished my screws also I didn't want to use any existing screw hole. What do you think would make them better this was a quick job I through in at work in between work I was doing with tools I had readily available and out already.

For the holes I would suggest a flat wood bit but they are tough to find this small, but they will leave a shoulder with enough recess for the screw head to sit flush. add a THIN washer and you're done.

I haven't seen any more attempts. the G6r grips really are made for a much slimmer frame so it's not gonna really work very well

If I had the need to I would do it but I'd just mark my holes and then Drill and tap for all the screws and then trim the rearmost upper section a tad for clearance and it would look perfect.

I may try that. It sounds like what I'd like to do, just need to get a tap and die set

I did actually go through with this. Followed Rob's advice and it worked out great.

Drill and tap the holes (6-32 NC tap, 7/64 Drill bit), use a Dremel/exacto knife to round the edge on the top corner of the grip, and Dremel the plastic protruding edge on the underside of the grips so they sit flush.

Feels way better than Hybrid wrap around grips and not as chunky as one might think.
