    Default customized vent screens

    Wanted a customized look for the vents, but did not want it to look like a chicken coop.
    So I bought powder coated aluminum Hexagon grill, and modified the factory grills. Looks good to me. With the backlighting installed these should look Awesome.

    Thank You, They are glued with JB WELD Plastic Bonder High Strength Structural Adhesive 15 minute set/30 minute cure time Black ..Try Walmart either in the automotive specialty rack, or over in home repair by the paint area. I sanded the bonder for a smooth texture, and then lightly painted the area black.

    Very cool that's a much nicer look than the chicken wire. Can I steal your idea? jtpollock

    Default STEAL?

    You can not steal what is freely given, Please take it an run with the idea, maybe your idea will improve on it.
