Mesh Grilled Upper and Lower 09 LS

So i decided to mesh the upper once i saw the diy for it, but the lower mesh diy was for a cobalt that had the lower middle section that was removable just like the top, unlike mine (damnit)

so with a little modification of the lower bumper (hacksaw, dremel, bondo, primer, paint, and then mesh ) my lower bumper now looks like the upper grill.

plus i blackened in my headlights as well, but cant really see em from this pic tho...



hows it look?
(yes i know the bowtie's missin lol)

ehhh... Not so muc ha big fan of it to be completly honest but if that your thing.... The bottom one has a bulge in it. I think a little larger of a hole in the mesh would look beter.

the edges are clean, u cant see the edges of the mesh or the epoxy unless ur looking from the back.

the bottom one has a bulge because the mesh isnt finished yet, i have one more cut to make before i secure it in place. would of been done but its gettin darker earlier so maybe tomorrow ill get the bulge out. too dark now

i can read ur mind. by the way your next thought was utterly vulgar. haha

it was just fast setting epoxy, mixed in small "batches," then i kind of pushed it in between the mesh and the "grill" piece. and trust me when i say "a dab 'il do ya," a little bit every few inches is plenty, plus when i find some better mesh, or somethin different, i can take the mesh in there now out no prob.
