Default Adding mesh to the engine cover

I am looking for instructions on adding mesh grills to the engine cover like will has. I tried a search, but since someone had mesh engine and cover in their sig, I got owned. If someone has a link, or can give me the quick low-down on doing it, I would appretiate it greatly. I have 2 spare covers at the moment so I could always experiment.

I've done my own, and 2 L27'* a couple years ago just like the 93 above of Pat'*. It'* fairly straightforward and simple.

Note that mine looks good partly because of the paint selected.

Yeah... Like will has. I understand the paint makes a visual difference, I'm just wondering how the mesh is mounted and how the locations for it were chosen? Any help is appretiated. Thanks.
