Yeah I figured they could at least ask people what color they want the mesh... Color matched seems odd to me. Poweder coated black would be nice.

WOW It just looks vicious!!! Very nice work! I like the tool you used to cut the hole, I considered using my dremel because I do not have a Jigsaw.

Thanks bud....We try using a jigsaw and this Milwaukee tool was 100% better and much smoother. This is basically the exact same thing as a dremel. Make sure you get two packs of the rotary bits. They go fast!

Thanks for the input.

Dang! Love the new photos WOW, You have me thinking about color matching my HEX vents now... I was going to do Carbon Flash to match the other accents... but it looks nice and clean body colored.
