This is a new thread for the air dam mesh.
old one is here. Yes, I did change a couple prices to reflect the effort I put into these.

We've had a few punctured condensers and this will probably be some cheap insurance (compared to the $600 repair bill) against that happening to you!

Details:

I wrote up THE DIY but some folks can't find the mesh and I've been asked to do a 'group buy'. There's no need for a minimum # of participants so it doesn't really follow the normal GB idea.

Kits will be pre-cut plastic or aluminum mesh (as specified in the option)and include zip ties(I have white, black, dark red, and blue ties). Price includes shipping to US usaflag.gif and Canada canadaflag.gif!! (I can look into shipping anywhere else.)

Grille pieces do NOT replace the stock grille - they're just added protection.

Pricing Disclaimer:
I readily admit that it would cost you a lot less to go to the store and get mesh and do this yourself, especially since my fellow Americans will be helping cover the shipping cost differences for any Canadian members.

Options: (prices in $US)
1a) 01-03 GT Air Dam --- $7
1b) 01-03 GT Air Dam + grille --- $8

2a) 01-03 GLS Air Dam --- $7
2b) 01-03 GLS Air Dam + grille --- $8

3a) 04-05 GT/GLS Air Dam and fogs --- $8
3b) 04-05 GT/GLS Air Dam and fogs + grille --- $10
3c) 04-05 GT/GLS Air Dam NO fogs --- $6
3d) 04-05 GT/GLS Air Dam NO fogs + grille --- $7

4) 10' of uncut mesh --- $6

You may add additional kits to your order for 1/2 price.
You may 'upgrade' to aluminum mesh for $2 more per kit.

Examples:
-- 1a shipped to Oregon = $7
-- 2b shipped to Toronto = $8
-- 3b+3b shipped to Cleveland = $12
-- 3c+upgrade shipped to Chicago = $8

Payment:
PayPal -- lydiasdad@yahoo.com (Sorry, no Credit or Debit card payments though.)

Please include your handle, car color, name, address, and what option(s) you want.

No PayPal? PM me -- I'll take a Money Order.

Shipping:
Yep, included in price. I get busy (work, school, 3 kids, etc.) and sometimes it can take me a week or so to get a kit out, so please be patient. If it's been a week, then please PM me and I'll try harder.

Now, I can get the gutter mesh, and the zapstraps... but I can't find the stickytabs to use as an anchoring system. any idea if you could fire these over here?

Honestly, the stickytab isn't all that great of a solution. It's quick and it's cheap, but...

If I remember correctly, LateAPXR mentioned a different/better solution to me. Maybe he'll chime in.

The sticky tabs have actually been working pretty well for me. I picked up a pack of three and mounted them strategically to the underside of the bumper and they're still strong even after the 3,000 mile jaunt (at 80MPH+ for long periods) across the country and the 3,000 miles I've put on the car since then. But I can see how they would probably fail after a while. If they do I'll just buy new ones, they were only about $0.80 for three and who doesn't love climbing under the car every now and then?

but they should be at your local hardware store (in the 'hardware' section) with the velcro and little felt feet and stuff.

I think I got mine at the Dollar Store.

What I did was I first removed the plastic cover that spans the gap between the grille and the radiator. It's held down with those quick rivets (that what they are?) so you need a phillips head screwdriver if you can't pop them out by hand. Depending on how large of a person you are you will be able to reach through the gap to do the zip-tying.

All I did was wrap one ziptie around the bumper (the actual metal bar and not the plastic bumper you traditionally think of as the bumper) to act as an anchor and then used another ziptie to go from the mesh to the anchor.

Basically there weren't any anchor points so I made one.

Oh and having removed my grille to trade it with CleanElantra I noticed that it would be a LOT easier to mesh the dam without the grille in place. It's not necessary but it would help.

Well it seems the company that makes the mesh I was using is cutting costs by reducing the quality/thickness of their mesh and I'm having a hard time finding the "good" stuff.

I have enough left for one more kit, then I'll have to sell my templates.

For everyone who has wanted to get one of these kits from me ... the clock is ticking.

Please, by all means, don't believe me in that post I just wrote, because everything I say is myth and a product of my imagination, and WILL result in the destruction of your own vehicle (according to some).

Well, I technically sold my last kit, but I'll see what I can do with the bits I have left + templates.
