Use a rotary tool and pretty much any bit like a grinding stone or whatever. Just grind away slowly until you get the proper results. Then use some kind of steel black fine mesh to make a grill.

I used a drammel tool (same as a rotary tool). And i used door screen to make the grill, I also used RTV silicone to glue the screen on let it dry over night and your good to go i hope this helps here some pics.
