i've considered doing that as well but decided it was too ricey..heh


by the looks of it you may have to cut the honeycomb off then fit the mesh up and super glue it in place

an alternative would be fitting the mesh over the honeycomb...not sure how that would look though...

That'* the way I'm doing it on my 95. Talk to BillBost37 though. He'* good at making that stuff, I don't know if he'* done it to his 97 yet, but did it to his 95 with out cutting or glueing anything.

SuperGlue isn't an option. It'* not flexible.

Why get rid of the stock grill..... just paint it..... like alien and I did....

I installed mesh in the lower part though.... like below the fog lights and above the skirt.... looks good there.

I put it right over the grill in my 95. It'* green and you can't see it.

I cut it just right to hold itself in place. No glue needed. On the 97 I believe I'm going to do it again, right over the grill. May use some wire or something to hold it. And will probably put some super thin hose or something over the edge.


Then theres the stereo
