Default Has Anyone Installed Mesh In Their Lower Grille?

I've got the mesh cut out and painted for my lower grille. I need some advice on securing it on. I know there are some of you that have done this and hoping you could help me out here.

zip ties my friend...

or you could do like the E&G grilles, they have a couple of posts that snug up against the thin pillars. put some washers and a bolt on there to hold it to the pillar.

I'm using this. you can buy individual pieces for like $6.00. http://www.homedepot.com/Amerimax-Ho...atalogId=10053

You can also get it from here which is what I used for the upper. It's a bit more pricey. http://www.customcargrills.com/products.asp?id=1

Zip ties is how I did mine. I used two per rib, black of course so you dont even see theme. I used the home depot gutter mesh sprayed it with gloss black. I replaced the mesh in my cmod with the same gutter mesh. If I find the pics I will upload them for you.

I have also seen paper clips epoxyd onto the bumper and you slide them through the mesh and bend them over. Had this on my first RLM, worked perfectly. Blk zip ties will do the trick too!
