I did mine the same way..... but being that I dont have the honey comb grille I had to get some small ones that could be seen through the lower slots in the grill. When I swap to the honey comb grille Ill be putting in some Hellas.

i think you have to stay under 60 or 90 watts though or you risk melting your grille.

There shouldn't be much of a problem with lights behind the grille, I haven't ever heard anyone talk about melting the grille.
