I finally replaced the cheap plastic part located in the Fog light housing. I was initially going to use the thin aluminum mesh that alot of members use. It appears that this was too unstable and will eventually break or be ripped apart. I chose a thicker mesh with larger diamond cuts. COST $10. 2 primer coats and 3 coats each of paint and Clear.

1st pic is a comparison of the 2 different types of mesh availible at Lowes.



Installed and painted

That looks awesome!
How'd you get the mesh to stick in there? Glue gun or something like that?

No glue. You want to make sure you cut the Mesh with a little larger than the opening. Then you use the 4 plastic clips that are already on the fascia to 'lock' the mesh in. This is done by bending and using a Dremel tool to make cuts in those clips and simply (not really simple) inserting the mesh into those cuts. It's holds very snug. Unfortunately, I didn't take pics of that.

Anyway, it looks awesome!
