I've decided to attempt to use most of the original bits for the grill block. I printed new end pieces with holes as that is necessary to give the servo arm clearance. I also glued the frame together and the blade together. The snaps would most likely be enough, but this really stiffens it up quite a bit. Just a dab bit of superglue on each joint did the trick quite nicely.
