Re: How to: Mesh grill on a 08 WK

yeah I don't think it will be very noticeable...not a lot of surface area for light to reflect off...BUT I would tape it to the back and see how it looks. DO NOT DRILL YOUR HOLES...I was just thinking that if you want a perfect fit with whatever mesh you use yu will want that on the back while you pre-drill your screws. There is a potential you may have to drill more...although that is not that big of a deal, just more work!

Re: How to: Mesh grill on a 08 WK

I looked at it and i think I can do it. When I take the bumper off for the mods for the chrome piece, I am going to figure it out...pretty sure I can do it, just might take some time and trial/error. Think good thoughts b/c if I figure it out you will be the first to know!!
