Doing My Mesh Grille Tomorrow

Well I have decided that I am going to do the DIY mesh grille. I am going to paint mine stone white to match the jeep instead of black.

I want to do both the grille and the lower opening. Im not sure yet how Im going to get the bottom done as I dont have the chrome insert but ill give it a try. Just going to pick up some Duplicolor stone white paint, primer and clear.

Going to get the mesh from HD right now!

Re: Doing My Mesh Grille Tomorrow

Awesome. i have an 05 WK and have a piece of mesh from Homedepot that would fit the lower opening perfect. They sell it in the gutter section, its the mesh gutter screening, cost less than 3 bucks for the piece too. I have it painted and ready to put on, but realized its more involved than I thought, meaning to make it secured properly I would be best off removing the whole bumper and doing it right. Its winter so im not about to half ass it, or take off my bumper in the cold. cant wait to see how yours comes out.

Timmy,
I've got a sheet of the same thing and am looking to do my lower lip this spring to match my grill. Keep in touch.

Will do. I will post a thread with pix when I do it. Like I said, to make it fit right I think the bumper needs to come off to secure it correctly and get the curves right.

Re: Doing My Mesh Grille Tomorrow

Yeah, I did my grill this fall, and then cut the piece to do the lower lip, but then stopped when I realized that it all really needed to come off to fit correctly. I can't wait, and look forward to any pictures you may have, my main concern is correct removal, so I don't break anything. Good luck and thanks.

Re: Doing My Mesh Grille Tomorrow

As far as breaking the fasteners im pretty sure if you go slow they will pop out with no problem. I read before that when removing the interior door panels to buy all new plastic clips cuz they break easy, but I have yet to break a plastic clip and have had all my door panels off more than 3 times each with speaker and soundproofing install. You should be fine, but if you happen to break a plastic fastener they sell them or something very similar at any local auto store.

Re: Doing My Mesh Grille Tomorrow

well HD didnt have anything but the square mesh. I figured id try it. If i dont like it ill find a different mesh to put in there. Its out drying. I think the stone white inside of the chrome grille is going to look badass. we'll see though

Re: Doing My Mesh Grille Tomorrow

Like I said before, that piece of mesh I used came from Homedepot in the roofing department, its a single piece of gutter mesh they sell. Im sure you can find it. Was less than 3 bucks for it.
