Default Grill thicking write up found

I like how the aftermarket grills on some of the GP'* look, the ones with depth to them, or should I say come out, not lay flat. Not too long ago I cut some eurogrill mesh to the same size as my fatctory grill and it looks nice. I wanted it to stick out though.
Like this







My grill now, needs some depth don't you think?




Looking around for info, found a write up on how to do this on a cardomain page, info towards the bottom for the grill http://www.sounddomain.com/memberpage/280865/6

I've got some extra eurogrill laying around somewhere, might give this a shot soon.

I dont think you can bring it right out like the gp but you may be able to let it come half way out? Like to the back of the pontiac arrow? If you do a mock up just leave the edges tapped up so they dont sratch anything while you dry fit. I saw mesh on ebay but havent bought any yet. I'll wait for your pics before I do
