    hey man, you can get to that part pretty easy i'm sure. If you can raise your car (ramps, etc) and get underneath it you will find that there is a flat spot, directly behind the number plat. You can attatch the mesh to that spot using whatever you prefer to hold it on with. The only problem with this is that its hard to get a screwdriver or other tools behind there. If its too hard you can take the front bumper off. There are a few screws at the top of the bumper, just under the hood, and a couple in front of the front tyres. You can get that off pretty easily then you will have more room to access the spot you want from the top, rather than under the car. Probably easier to get one person under the car and another at the top. 2 hands make lighter work...remember! Should work, im only going by memory as i did it a long time ago. Cheers...

    I did mine on my vx but i figure it should be about the same..

    I got 4 right angle toggle switch mount from super cheap auto, (2bux each)
    took the bar off, glued the swith mount to the flats of the intake on the bumper with sikaflex...

    Screwed the mesh to the mounts....

    This arrangement worked well......till i hit a rabbit anyway.... :p

    I got pix if u want, i jst cbf posting them atm...lol
