Re: How to: Mesh grill on a 08 WK

i was going to get self tapping screws but they are alittle sloppy when starting them out, they tend to walk on you, so i just went with drilling my own holes with a small bit cause there isnt a lot of area to work with, i just wanted to be precise, but let me know how they work

Re: How to: Mesh grill on a 08 WK

if you dont paint it, it will rust, there was a sheet in lowes that was alittle rusty, you would atleast have to clear it, or maybe silver, depends what look you are going for, but either would look good, is your grill chome or black?

Mine is Chrome, but I plan on doing black mesh. OD' on the chrome if I dont do black.

BPOD has a black grill.

Re: How to: Mesh grill on a 08 WK

Yeah true with the tapping screws. I'm going to go back to lowes tonight and get reg screws. What size did you get rufdod?

---------- Post added at 12:56 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:55 PM ----------

Yeah Irf. Your brilliant black with the black grill it may get lost in there. I would try a silver/grey/charcoal color maybe and clear coat it...
