someone a long time ago use some kind of mesh on the lower bumper openings it looked pretty good in fact it was the only one I ever seen, I think it look pretty good with mesh grille inserts in the 4 spaces on the lower grille where the fog lamps are.

OH yes yes yes! That is my prefered look as well. What paint did you use? Krytox makes a brand specifically for plastics for use on automobiles..chip proof. No need for primer when you use that.
