I'm think of doing somthing like that on mine. Did you have to remove the bar to do that or is it installed on the outside.?

in paint go "Ctrl+w" then make both length and width a matching percentage.
The grill looks good :D

Yeah i didnt like that chicken wire s**t so i just went and bought a sheet of mesh from Repco (Autobarn also sell it) for $30 and cut it out to size. The one in the middle was the hardest to mould tho.

On the two brake duct holes i used sikaflex and the middle one i held in with pop rivets. Its not very heavy so it doesnt take much to secure it

i was going to sujest that you make the mould bigger and fold the edges over the outside of the holes to make a lid style thing then either hot glue it or use sikaflex to hold it there. i like the look of mesh, as i dont like seeing all the internal crap that the front bar is suposed to cover
