Decided to put a grill behind and could not find a metal one so settled on a plastic grill which works better cause it was black and light.













Cost of project 4 bux. Gutter guard, zip ties, and 30 minutes :thumbsup:

yep just using the screws, so secure that no double side tape was necessary

Cool idea looks good man, but I'm picky don't like how you can see the zip ties on the bottom grill. Maybe use a glue gun lol or find some other way :dunno:

Smart move, it keeps vital A/C parts from getting smacked with a stray rock.
Yeah, I've always wondered why Honda didn't put in some kind of mesh from the factory...

Looks great btw! Home Depot ftw. :thmsup:

ive tried to take a pic with my blackberry with no avail, ill get a pic up with the entire front tomorrow with an actual camera.

nodrog321, the screws where there already, just unscrewed them put mesh and screwed them back in.

it's very solid, I drive on the hwy everyday and have no problems

btw stay tuned for my dummies guide for ebay fog light soon :thumbsup:

I am so glad you posted this. I had figured my car was missing some factory screen down there, and did exactly what you did here, except my gutter guards came from Lowes. But I was too embarrassed to post it. It is definitely better than having nothing there. My M3 has a plastic grid and it has worked well for the eight years I've owned it.

Looking forward to the pix and the fog light how-to.

turns out taking a pic from a distant is impossible with my cameras so i had to take one from about half a meter away. Any farther and it cant capture the grill. In real life you can actually see it from a few meters.

Seriously might do this over the weekend, and was wondering what people thought about adding in somehow a grill badge - thought it would be really cool and original if i can do something like a 6-6 Badge *maybe even a thick decal on the wiring - :naughty:

What was the brand of the wiring used? Might go to HD tomorrow -

Yeah please, what was the brand ? I went to HD and they didn't have this at all, just a chrome one. I want the black plastic.

Ok so I went to Home Depot today and all they had was these huge rolls of chicken wire basically, annoyed I went to my local hardware store and found it!!
Its black gutter guard and its plastic and perfect!! A nice roll is only $2.99 -

Here is my mock up of what I am trying to do, mind you i don't know yet what badge i will be making, the 6-6 was an experiment lol ..
