I am just getting back in to fixing the car up and wanted to put a mesh grille in where the upper grille is. I really couldn't find anything and then I found this:

customcargrills.com - 05-09 Chevy Cobalt Mesh Grill Insert Kit

I read the instructions and it says to use wire ties and put it over the existing grille. Wouldn't that look tacky? Just want some opinions before I regret buying this haha. Thanks guys.

Agree here too, always find they look redneck. Might as well put chicken fencing. Well opinion you wanted, opinions you got.

Alright so what are some suggestions? Especially on eBay. If it helps the mesh wasn't going to be in silver or chrome but powdercoated black

There's a site that makes an upper grill insert for cobalts ill try to find it for you
I think its like 60$ thought you might be better to buy the mesh and do it yourself

Here it is

That is what I put up earlier, and MKurley how much would you do it for?

Just found this. I'm going to get it next week. Little more pricey, but IMO worth it.

sabies link is not clickable, and that SS grile is pretty nice. what about people with the LS?
This should fit an LS. Eyeballed it and looks like it should fit. I have an LS as well. I don't see why it wouldn't.

I've been wanting to do something like this for a while and remember seeing a how-to some where on this forum. Only problem is, I can't find the how-to any more, and I can't figure out for the life of me what the mesh would fasten to (securely). This mod looks fantastic though.

Well I'm just a regular conversation killer now aren't I? Seems every thread I post in comes to a screeching halt...
