That looks good Maxx, you may or may not know this but you can cut your grill out and use it there also

I was waiting for someone to ask, :classic: being I work in the marine industry, I come across some cool stuff. This is a two part epoxy call Plexus MA300. Put it this way, when I start breaking stuff like bulkheads and drive shafts i'm gonna fix it with this.
This stuff dries rock hard in about 10 minutes. This stuff isn't even available to the public. But hey, if anyone wants some just pm me.
It is however pretty expensive.

Where did you find the mesh? I have been looking everywhere for it. I want to do some grills for my RS4 3.

BTW it looks really good on your T

It should hold up pretty good, it's not regular screen. It's actualy more like fine grating.

And aside from how the screen holds up, let us know how the roof holds up. Taking out all the windows takes alot of the structural integrity. But man that looks cool. I think I have another project......

Structural integrity has been improved, the mesh is way srtonger than the original material.

By next week we want to see an entire body molded from this wonder-mesh :ha :D

If I do decide to do it I won't be molding, I will be cutting panels of mesh to attach to tubular cage. I hope I will have the time this weekend to do it.:D But I have to calculate the W factor.
(wife). She will probably want to do the family thing since it will be raining all week end.

OK, since I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the brightest here, what exactly should we be looking for if we wanted to find this kind of screen? Is there a brand name specifically? Or just SS #4? Just wondering....
