I had some mesh lying around that I was planning to stick behind my front bar when I took it off to put an auto trans cooler in.

Well, I still haven't taken the bar off, nor have I put the trans cooler in yet, but I did slap the mesh in.

Have a look in my photo gallery and tell me what you think.

I don't think it looks too rice - gives the stock look a little lift IMHO

good job, that looks awesome.. it adds a neat look to the car as opposed to having those spots empty

how did you get the mesh on? did you take the front bar off to get it on?

Does anyone know where I can purchase the stainless steel weave mesh as used in the T Series grills? Ford wants to charge over $1000 for the mesh.

Looks very tough. Ive been meaning to do this for a while...

On one side you can see my water injection tank and the other side you can see the air filter and BOV dump.... really needs to be covered up.
