Can a microphone be flush mounted with the grid cap removed?

Yes, you can flush mount a microphone without a grid cap on. The delicate diaphragm will be exposed and precautions should be taken to prevent anything from coming in contact with it. The best approach (for accuracy) is to thread the microphone into the hole with grid cap removed so that diaphragm is flush mounted.  You must be careful not to damage diaphragm.
