wow. i did this exact same thing. the mesh is really hard to fit perfectly in the grill.

you make it sound like you "molded" it really easily. i spend probably 2 hours on just the mesh and still haven't gotten it perfect.

If you can get it molded and get it to stay it will look great, I helped a buddy do his and it took us hours to get it perfect, good luck!

Mines plastic not metal so mine is easier to work with
Haven't worked on it in a couple days but I'm going to try to have I finished by the end of the week

i'll have to check out the plastic mesh. how did you measure it? what i did with mine was basically cut, test fit, cut, and so on.

bluebullet 08-26-2012 08:05 PM

I just layed on the grill and cut it bigger and just trim it as I go
