Re: DIY: 2003-2004 Mesh Grill

any other home improvement store should have it... or get it online. Or perhaps canadians don't have gutters?

When doing the mesh on the bumper where would I tie it to hold it on? This is my project for the next day or two

I figured I should add an installed pic too. I shot it with some metallic bronze to match the MB Weapons I'm waiting for tires for. I'll be doing the lower one the same way and am thinking about offering up some brand new upper and lower F/L grilles pre-done for others either in the bare aluminum, or painted. I found out that the 03-06 upper grilles are the same too.

I finally got around to doing the lower, and boy what a pain in the butt that one is to re-install!
Before - ugly, ugly, ugly:


Mesh on, and spaces cut for the tabs:


Paint that ish, son!


Money shot! Boom!


I painted the mesh part of my gills bronze too:

Im going to do this soon too! I want to color match the mesh to my future rims and perhaps also do the gills. My tib is Carbon Blue, thinking of gumetal for the grille, rims, etc. Still undecided. Contemplating white too, but I think it might be too bright in contrast with the dark blue.

That's what I did, I matched my grilles and gill mesh to my wheels. Gunmetal or dark gray would look great on a carbon blue tib, imo. Let me know if you need some pointers on wrapping the mesh on your grilles, it can be kind of a pain. Once I hit 100 posts, I may start selling them pre-wrapped. :)
