Strongjeff's Lower Grill Insert!

well guys, as some of you may know, I had to rebuild my front bumper last year. Anyway, I also put in a lower grill insert into the lower part of the bumper.

Here is the thread for the bumper replacement and what had happened:

well what happened was.....

Anyways....

I got the supplies from home depot and walmart.

supplies you will need:

1 roll of VINYL gutter mesh*
1 tube of epoxy
1 roll of masking tape
1 lighter

*Must use the vinyl mesh as its easier to work!

(NOTE: IF YOU INTEND TO REMOVE THE AIRDAM THIS IS NOT THE MOD FOR YOU! THIS IS A PERMANANT INSTALL!!!)

1: locate the gap between the airdam and the support behind it.
2: cut the vinyl to shape and tuck between the airdam and support!


!sorry for the blurry pic!

3:Use a lighter to soften the mesh so that its easier to crease, plus it holds its shape better when cool



4: tape the top of the mesh to the back side of the bumper. this will hold it in place as you epoxy it into place


5: Epoxy the top of the mesh down. wait for it to dry. time to dry depends on the product you use

6: Once dry you can reinstall the bumper to the jeep or you can, like I did, epoxy a jeep or any emblem you like to the grill.
