Default DIY - 08+ mesh front grill

well since i dont ever recall seeing one of these before weeing as the 08+ have a grill shape thats not easy to replicate, unlike the bugeye, i decided to make one myself.

Also, this saves me a lot of money by not having to get a grillcraft grill or buy someones wrx grill.

however, as i stated, its hard.

im not done yet, but im working on it and i can see why theres no other guide on this. as it is rather tedious to get around all the round edges

as in my scoop grill mod, i started with cordboard templates fitted to the car 1/2 at a time.

Next i mated the two half together and cut out a general shape of the grill with plenty of space left over to bend in support braces to later drill to if this comes even remotely close to working.

I intend to use the cardboard guides as bend guides to get the general shape down and the rest will be when i fit it to the car. wish me Luck, ill keep you updated with pictures as the night progresses
