Default Anyone put mesh on their fogs?

So as I'm randomly admiring the little buddy (the baja, not... never mind ) the other day I realize a rock put a hole in one of my foglights... d@mn that low front end!

Light still works, sealed it with silicone.

The hardware store's got lots of metal / wire / plastic mesh to choose from, I'll probably just cut out the inside diameter of the guard that's on there and ziptie it on the inside.

Question is: doesn't it seem like someone who have made some of these already for the legacy with the same fogs? I've searched the 'net but can't find any... has anyone run across something like this yet?

I've seen an Imprezza 2.5RS with mesh covers over the foglights, but I don't think they would fit a Baja...

You might look into expanded metal as an alternative to net or mesh... a piece of fine guage expanded metal could be placed behind the stock cover and provide real protection...

Yeah that's the sort of thing I'm thinking.

The entire Impreza line-up can get covers, and at the dealership today I noticed the new Outback has covers similar to our scoop mesh.

Man we get treated like the red-headed step child of the Subaru bunch! Even in the Drive magazines they don't show the Baja in the line-up! Sorry, I'm having accessory envy...

I was down at the Ace hardware store and picked up some black metal window screen and zip ties for the fog guards. Trimmed them up and zipped them in, looks factory and is sturdy. Took about $2 and 15 minutes. For reference, the fog guards rotate off their mounts counterclockwise. When I get a chance I'll post some pics.
