Hey they DO sell big sheets of that mesh grill, I got some a while back for the bottom sco0p, but I've been lazy...
the sheet is about 3ft. high by 10 or 20 ft. long. I don't know how much though, my friend gave it to me. Should'nt be more than $20.

I was just about to say that... was it much harder to bend the thicker metal?

not a whole lot of bend in them. bottom sheet is straight across and top has a slight curve

That gutter guard like you say was $1.30 a sheet for 6"x36" or something like that. I did my 88le with 3 sheets and it filled in the upper and lower grille and airdam and looks hella nice. I'll get some pics up soon.

Hey fellas,

I have a '93 with the solid bars that run cross shape instead of a grill. Is there any way to replace it with a newer model'* grill or am I stuck with the solid cross pieces? The damn paint is peeling off of it.
