I only just finshed meshing my venom bar a couple of days ago. I removed my bar off the car to make sure I got the mesh on properly. All I used to hold it was some liquid nails to hold it in place and a bit of sikaflex to bond it totally. Unfortunately I don't have an process pics because the camera batteries were dead and took 18 hours to charge. But here are some after pics :)

For the venom bar, mesh = good. Because I have a new radiator on and you should see the bugs and massive holes from stones going through that big mouth in a short time.
My little "T" wings are held on by sikalfex.
