Title: Mesh on front grill
Post by: davidewanprice on July 01, 2007, 05:59:19 pm
Anyone tried it, was thinking of doing it to help save the radiator, Its pretty new but already showiing signs of damage from stones etc. Im sure its not to hard but if anyones done it and got pictures to show what it looks like.  I thought a fairly tight mesh in black would look great?

Thank you! But the desired effect is hoped to be somewhat more sophisticated...


But if not Iíll bang some blue neons on!

The mesh on the front of this car was purchased at B&Q and is a perforated and stretched galvanised sheet of metal (the sort of material found on old fire guards), it is very easy to cut and shape and can be painted if required. The best part is how cheap it is.

And there aint no chav in that, even a fake snake aint chav!
I just think that the radiator is so exposed! surely protecting it is a good upgrade?

Cooling being an issue on Murenas, I wouldn't want to impede the airflow to the rad in any way. Chavvy or not.

I respectfully disagree.. :)
It sits nice and comfortable behind the license plate and the lower shield... much better then on lots of other 80'ies cars.
