Step 1

The first thing that you have to do is to set up the base of your grill. Get the wood of your choice and build a square base, then attach wheels underneath so that you can move them around easily, stain the wood, and set it aside. Cut the steel plate into a circle with the same diameter as the car rim, then drill a hole at the center the same size as your metal tube or rod, and smoothen the edges.

Step 2

Attach the tube or rod to the car rim, then insert the round steel plate to cover the bottom of the car rim, and apply some adhesive around the gaps to hold them in place. Drill some holes at the sides of the rim, then attach some hooks to hang the tongs. Spray paint the grill black, then let it dry completely before you attach it to the wooden base. Watch the video tutorial below for more details.
