Hey people,
Just got a request for info about how i installed my front mesh so i figured i would just post a thread on it.

STUFF:
Mesh, 8 screws, 8 washers, 8 nuts (hehe) 4 toggle switch mounts from super cheap and plastic gule

STEP 1:
remove front bar, three screws at the top middle of the bar near the bonnet latch and a couple in each guard.
STEP 2:
Clean the surfaces you will be gluing to with metho
STEP 3:
Glue the toggle brackets to the front bar, let the glue fully dry (Over night) before attaching the mesh
STEP 4:
Attach the mesh using screws that fit the toggle mount holes and large washers.
STEP 5:
Replace front bar.

Cheers for the info mate, will give this a go to my car now :)

Do you actually bend the mesh around the mouth of the spoiler,
or just cut to shape and screw in to place?

Comes up nice as a finished look

What colour would everyone think would suit Heron White?

Black/White, or a Champagne/White colour?

Thanx,

Just cut the mesh to size.
I bent it abit so if better fit the curve of the mount as its not totally straight.
