I know this is a mesh thread but I want to throw in my 2 cents... I did a billet grille and wish I saw this thread earlier because I've been fighting with getting the two together for a few hrs now at first I thought it would be a good idea to use rod cement for fixing fishing poles ... Yeap that dumb.. So that didn't work and I used a plastic epoxy which is working pretty good now.

For those that don't know rod cement is heated up like hot glue then hardens. Turns out if you use that then go play 9 holes at your favorite golf course in 70-80 degree weather with the front end of the truck facing the sun, the "heated up" action happens again and your painted surround comes off.

But now it's all got the plastic epoxy. Fingers crossed it'll work now. But to make a fat story thin... Ask the master before you end in disaster.

Any chance of reposting the videos? It appears that they are no longer there...

are you willing to sell the Mx mesh already pre-bent to look like the Raptor style?

I know, First Post! but i'm very serious about wanting to buy this. Love your work man!

Sorry but no I do not.
I did a whole batch of 6 back in August. It was a huge PITA and I decided it was too much extra effort to continue.
Thank you for the kind words though!

Is it possible to take this piece off the bumper without cutting or melting it off to make an open space for a l.e.d. bar?
