Re: How To: Install a mesh grill on a 08 WK

You can pick that mesh up at either Home Depot or Loews. It comes in a 24"X24" sheet wrapped in cardboard. It is a fairly thick mesh and comes unpainted. Sorry I don't remember the brand but all you have to do is cut the sheet in half and you get enough mesh to cover the grill in two 12"X24" pieces. I also picked up spray paint and a sheet metal cutting attachment for my electrical drill at home. Again it's easy cheap and looks great.

Since the grill you purchased is a lot beefier than the others I have seen people install, did you have any difficulty/problems attaching mesh to grill? You still use washers and screws or soemthing different?

No not at all. I actually receomend using it rather then the flimsy stuff other people are using. I used typical screws and large washers just the same as you would with other mesh. The only thing is cutting it. dont try to use scissors or a hand saw, use a mechanical cutting mechanism and do it right. Again I just bought an attachment for cutting sheet metal from home depot that you can put on an electrical drill. worked like a charm.

Re: How To: Install a mesh grill on a 08 WK

Roger that, good ideas. I plan on doing something very similar next time I have some time off from work.

I wanna get a piece like that powdercoated with a gloss black finish to install.
