    Zip ties and those little mount things that are right next to them at Home Depot, and some Gorilla glue to attach the mounts to the grille for good measure. Mine have been on for 8 months with no problem. :p

    The OP from the satoshi how to used two part epoxy and every four inches or so around the outside of the existing grill. Then dropped into each epoxy point those pieces (that the guys above my response said was next to the zip ties @ home depot), followed by attaching zip ties, and cutting the excess zip tie off.

    Good luck, and wait 5-10 after you attach the zip tie holders before you secure your mesh on.

    hitaco, you really dont need anything more then zip ties, it does not move at all on mine, and I have them spread out every 3-4 inches...but good on you nonetheless.
