My Grille Mod - Help Finding Mesh (05/06 new pic)
 
Well, I couldn't find any good mesh in my area so I used what I had on hand. What I would really like though is to find some nice stainless steel mesh. Anyone know of a good supplier? I'll make you a deal, I find a good supplier and I will tell you all what I used on my 08 grille (see pic). I'm sure you'll find it funny, total cost of the job was about $15 bucks and I have 1/2 the material left over.[hihi]

Great. Now it looks like a Lincoln.

That just looks like rain gutter mesh from Lowe's or Home Depot. Anyhoo, here's an awesome source: http://www.mcnichols.com/products/expanded/

that looks sick man good work

LOL, you are 1/2 right, the upper grille is $1.67 rain gutter guard. And thanks for the link, that looks like what I'm looking for. I'm hoping it doesn't look like a "Lincoln" with some nice mesh. Now what about the bottom material, any thoughts?

BradWhite 04-30-2008 11:48 PM

All right, I'm going to bed. The bottom material is BBQ screen (made to put your veggies and stuff on while grilling). And I really did buy them for the BBQ (4 for 5$) but some how two of them wound up on the front of my car. Just an experiment, too much time on my hands, to see what it might look like with some mesh. I'm liking it but the center section with the 9$ Auto Zone chrome door trim maybe a bit much. But then, that was mostly to protect my freak'n hands from the sharp edges on that stuff.

gotta say, i was expecting something really crappy but that looks good

I definitely know about the gutter mesh; that's what I've sprayed black and overlaid onto my stock grill, with the oval on top of it all. As to the lower grille, you get to guess what that is. [idea]
