Default Stainless Steel Woven Mesh Grill

. Finally finished fabricating and installing a new grille in the 2004 Bonneville. I did not like the look of the last grille, too cheep looking, so I bought some woven stainless steel mesh. I cut it on a diagonal and bent it into shape using a pattern I made earlier in the summer. I like this look a lot better that the other material I used.




I also started on another project, installing a set of CATZ dual lamp fog/driving lights on the car. Here is a rough shot of the custom switch panel I am fabricating to go into the useless space that hold coins or whatever in the dash. Next step is to primer and paint the panel to match the interior.

PDad. When I fabricated the inserts I used some liquid steel to glue the area on the mesh that would normally be the tabs on a stock grille. Then I cut out the tabs and bent them up to go into the slots of the car nose assembly. I also used a small ty rap to secure the mesh in place in case it comes loose due to vibrations.

Bought it from Racer parts Wholesale. I went with the medium wire mesh for $29.95. There is a lot left over for another project I am looking to do.
