    Mesh grille for v70 ph2 facelift 2007

    Guys, I'm sure this has been covered before, but has anyone cut out the
    centre from a facelift V70 standard "waterfall" grill and fitted a mesh in its
    place ?
    I can't find anywhere now selling a black mesh grill for the facelift V70.

    If there are any pics available, that would be very helpful.

    (I know there's the alternative of painting the standard grill black, but I prefer the mesh look.)

    Thanks
    John

    It's something I've been thinking about but not yet gotten around to.

    If the new grille is a "part", installation won't be hard at all.
    If you fabricate a new grille with some mesh you'll find edging it or even bending it will be where the challenges arise.
    I want to fit some mesh to the lower opening of my V70 to protect the AC condenser. I figure fitting any mesh to this low point will be a great place to practice.
