    A small handful of select mods.
    If you bend the mesh correctly you can rivet to the plastic surround or a lot of guys will zip tie it with some quality zip ties. As far as paint, IMO since that will be in front of rocks, bugs, and liquid de-icer I would Powder Coat it after you pre-fit it and have it ready to go.

    Also try to find aluminum mesh so you do not have to worry about rust.

    That's the easy part. Zip ties. I'll snap some pics later and show you. The whole thing wasn't that bad at all.

    I just did this last week! Cancelled tv/phone & kept 'net, then signed up for Netflix & hulu plus. Saving almost $100/mo doing that. I had Optimum with DVR, everything HD, all movie channels. .. blah blah.

    I get the suspicion that's the way I'll eventually get with it, but for $7/mo or so I figured it was worth trying out.

    I just took mine off...snapping most of the things holding it on of course haha even while trying hard not to. So I'll have to go get some more of those.

    There is downright nothing to ziptie to on mine lol I'm stumped so doing more research.

    You would probably have to drill new holes at an angle through the surround.

    Hmm...still seems really difficult. I can't be the only person trying this and yet I can't find any build threads in my mad searching. I have a backup plan at least...still have to run to the dealer to see if that will work though.

    On a side note I took my emblem off and made it all nice and shiny cause I was bored.

    Would be better if it wasn't all pitted lol
