HomeDepot...(it's called "stucco mesh" at my local store) buy it there for like $3.00 for a 3'x6' piece...it's cheap and looks great...holds up really well over time too (mine has been in for going on two years)!

another option is to goto a machine shop. the mesh i got has a really nice pattern and it's very strong and it didn't cost much at all. be sure to tell them you don't want the steel mesh though.

although the chicken wire/stucko mesh works great... it also looks very cheap compared to the mesh linked, or similar meshes you can buy made specificaly for a car grille. I went out and spent a few more dollars and am very pleased with the results.... it looks 10X better...

also if you paint something on the front of you car... unless you powdercoat it on, it'll chip and look like crap after a few runs down the highway....

riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight :rolleyes:
well, for my next 'rude smartass comment, i will say:
"i'm pretty sure my left nut has contributed more to this forum and its members than you have thus far St8LyRaVn"

but in my defense for that last post, i didn't say it in a threatening or insulting way, so i'm sorry you took it SO personally.
also - if you post a picture of your car... its open-season to all comments, good or bad, so you better learn to take both positive and negative criticism. - i'm glad you have since fixed your grill, but hey, if you don't MENTION that in your first post, how am i suppose to know?...honestly.


and thank ye Daniel and Jason. :)

I gave in and bought some of that stucco mesh at Home depot, it is just as pictured above. My biggest problem with working with it is it being so sharp, my hands are cut all over, the stuff I posted earlyer is not nearly as bad. I have finished the upper grill and it looks great, I did half somewat of the lower but I am going to do a custom job based on an idea I had. My new lower grill will be a secret project untill done, expect the reveal end of January.
