Re: Custom Mesh Grille

I bought this grille from another member and the mesh backing came from Home Depot. The mesh was originally dark and almost black looking. Considering all of the rain we have had this month I noticed a couple of very small spots of corrosion starting to pop through. I picked up some heat resistant vehicle primer and silver metallic spray paint and the rest is history. (same stuff you would paint your calipers with)

Re: Custom Mesh Grille

What did you use to attach the mesh to the grille?

Re: Custom Mesh Grille

Yep! thats pretty much the whole process wrapped up in a nutshell. I just used 3/4 in machine screws with beveled washers in a pre-drilled hole to attach the mesh. Its pretty easy once you get it cut and fitted. There is actually two pieces of mesh behind the grille. When I took the mesh off, it was a pain to refit but I finally got it and it turned out better than I had anticipated. I was originally going to do the gloss black as well but had a change of heart and am glad that I went with the metallic silver. It is a cheap mod that definitely gives the grille a clean and custom look without going overboard.

Re: Custom Mesh Grille

Nice work!
Ever considered getting the same mesh and doing the area below the bumper in the front valence?
