Winch cover ?

Thinking about cutting to grill piece that goes around the winch . Was wondering what is the best way to do it ? And is there a certain pattern to go by ? Thanks for any help . Oh , I have 2009 Sportsman 500 with a Warn winch.

Winch cover

If you look at the back of the grill you will see a faint outline of a template you can cut out to use as a winch cover. Just score the lines with a utility knife and cut it out with a jigsaw. Use a file to smooth the edges and you are done.Good luck! Frank
