Wanted to update this because integral_machine was spot on. After only a few days, the black paint on the GutterGuard started to chip off. So I took his advice and resprayed it with Plasti-Dip. Not only did it make the paint more durable, it made the mesh look more flat instead of slightly glossy. Still looks basically the same, but probably will look better longer now that I resprayed it.

How did you attach the mesh? I am doing this to mine also, I have the mesh and everything and tomorrow I am cutting the honeycomb out. I want it to be secure without worries, so I was hoping you could fill me in on your process so I can save a bundle of time trying to fit mine perfectly. looks great though!!! good job!!

The answer to your question is in the thread my boy. Instead of attaching the mesh to the back of the grille, it basically just sits behind the grille in a channel behind the bumper. I cut notches where the mesh would sit on the headlight tabs, and its kinda loose until you reattach the grille itself. Then its solid. This method prevents the need for messy hot glue or liquid nails or whatever most people use to attach the mesh to the grille.

With the mesh behind the grill does it make it look weird at the side view? like there isnt any mesh? I cant really tell in the pics..I tried the hot glue to put my mesh on...and it didnt hold up Sooo im trying to think of new ideas

Oooh Ok I gotcha, basically just jam it in there and give it no choice to move. I like the idea, I wouldn't have thought of that, creative though...I like it. Thanks for clearing that up.

Yep, Prodrive UK300s. They are very hard to come by these days. When I saw them in the classifieds, I snatched em up and signed over my first born

One major downfall is they are not DOT legal, so I have to swap them out for inspections. Other than that, I love em!!!

Thanks! Post up a Wanted thread and also watch eBay. Hopefully you'll get lucky. They usually go for between $500 and $650 depending on condition. In the past year or so, I think I've seen 3 or 4 sets up for sale.

Good luck!!
