Six Wegin, that is exactly the sort of look I'm after.

Can you do a step by step, and rough cost of materials?

How did you attach/adhere the mesh to the back of the grill?

Need to get off my butt and do this to mine already!

the mesh i bought came with little metal tabs. you adhere them to the back of the grill and then bend them around the mesh to hold it in place.

Sweet! Need to do this, sick of the chrome "wings" of the stock grill! ):

Hi all,
Finally got around to doing it, I filled in the front angle in as well and had it painting professionally so it will hold up in the long term

I've done the lower opening too now, definitely needs a border to match the foglight surrounds. The mesh sits approximately 20mm back from the corner of the opening and appears to be in line with foglight mesh for anyone wondering where to cut.

How did everyone attach their badge? Almost finished up and can't figure out a good way to attach it without sikaflex.

Finished the grill mod. Need to paint the inside of the bumper now as it's visible through the grill. Plastidip time.
