Ok so here's a relatively quick and simple mod lso very cheap, I used grille/kit mesh in silver but black, blue or red stuff or even painted colour would also be striking and pretty neat
Ok so here's what it looked like stock.....Image

Then pulled the grille and the remaining insert in the. Bumper (the little black piece). Using a cardboard template I trace around the template onto the grille mesh using marker, be sure mesh is shiny side up (you'll see what I mean there's a shiny side and dull side which will effect the overall look once finished) securing it with fishing line as I did or zip ties can also be used

I cut the mesh with a small set or garden shears (not the big ones) but you could prolly use kitchen scissors or side cutters as the mesh is fairly soft.

Here's the final result......Image

Very nice!
How did you attach the mesh? Or is it just wrapped around the OE grill?
