Default mesh grille installed!! NOW WITH PICS!!!

I finally got my mesh grille put in. I made it out of that gutter guard that is available at Home Depot. Its galvanized steel, but it looks like aluminum. I glued pieces of plastic inside the horizontal part in the center and screwed the mesh to it. It doesnt look crappy at all.

go get a disposable one, they are like $10, and you get a cd with the pics on it...

then you should get them on photobucket in like 10 min of being home, and then post away

isnt that mesh really filmsy??? my gutter guard was...id be nervous about snow and stuff pushing on it

I didnt know they had disposably digital cams.... I have dial up fo I'de have to upload them for hours. The gutter mesh is about 3/32 thick. Its not really that flimsy. I had no problems at all, but then a 1990 grille has at the most, 1 1/4:" of open space with no support.

You don't even need a disposable digital cam, per se.

Just ask for the pictures on CD at any reputable photo developing place. That'* where me sig pics come from.

Could you get one of the front end, maybe 5 ft away or so? That pic isn't the best angle, and shows the grille, versus what the grille looks like on the car. I like the grille though

Sorry, I only took a couple of pics with the grille on the car, and that was the best of the two. I took the grille off to think up of another more reliable way of attaching the steel mesh. I just wanted to see what it looks like on the car before I start making any permanent changes. For now you just have to take my word for it: it looks NICE.
