HI TAIns

this weekend I did a much awaited DIY on my altos grill. Installed mesh. I am happy with the works and not with the perfection. Sharing some of the pics. Please have a look and advice me what to modify for better looking grill.

Looks good, you could have used a mesh with bigger holes it would look much better.

Also you could fill up the gaps below the grill.
May be a S logo will add more character to it.

Did you used the stock bracket for fitting the mesh grill? What sort of cutting/pasting was involved, I love the mesh grills but can't dare to experiment with my Dicor's stock grill. Could you post a step-by-step guide?

P.S: Well Done!

Rakesh, it looks like a nice job done. I think painting black on the mesh make it look more beautiful. Seeing a KL 41 registration car on TAI makes me more happy. My 3 vehicles also had 41 registration.
