I have been wanting to do the full mesh for awhile now, but since I have an LS, it's a lot harder to do the side pieces. I'm just too scared of taking a dremel to my bumper, lol.

i removed the amber lens for the turn signals and painted the inside of my headlights to match my body color. Also it was stucco mesh from lowes for like 7 bucks i had more then enought
to do all three grills. Sucks having the LTZ and having to mesh around the chrome as you can see in the WIP pic.The fogs i didnt cut, i wanted too but i just taped off that area and painted black and then cleared it and same with the bottom middle grill. for the bottom grills i just cut tabs to line up with the tabs on the bumper from the old plastic grills folded in and j.d. weld (epoxy) them on the inside
If i have too froms stone chips i can pop the fogs out and tape my bumper off and paint it over agian on the car.

do you have any closer pics of each grill... it looks like you put the mesh on the outside of the bottom ones. i am in the process of doing mine. but cutting out the insides is a little diff than the uppers. the metal part behind the lower outside grills did you paint that instead of the metal being white?
