xkmacx86,

I am about to install my mesh, I was just curious if you used the same method as shown in this post since you have a Colorado as well... Ide imagine the measurements would be slightly different on the Colorado to the Canyon...

If you have pics of your installation that would be amazing!

Thanks

no pics all i did was strip twist ties of their wires and used thoes to tie the mesh to the billet. once affixed i used tin snips and cut to match.

Wonder how well the mesh would look behind the factory slots(Don't trust myself to cut em out, lol...), Hmm.

I love the look !
I'm interested in doing the same mod but still have the factory grill. Any chance in getting the make and mod number of yours ?
