Re: Jetta mesh Kamei! Answer my question! (Need_Corrado)

You can paint the frame and other part behind the grill a flat black.
Or you can place regular bug screen (black) behind the grill.
But do not place anything behind that does not alllow air to pass.

Do you mean like those tiny little mesh screens? like screen windows and doors?

Correct! You can attach using whatever method you prefer.
But a good one it either spot epoxy, silicone, or hot glue.

the second picture shows the area that needs to be painted. I can post a pic of my car when I'm home if you'd like, don't have any here at work. Makes a world of difference, you should def. do it.

Sweet! it should be glued to the actual grill though, right?

That's up to your discretion on that.
Some have placed it right behind + attached it to the grill.
Others have suspended it a inch or two back; it's really up to you.

I'd paint it black. Just buy some painters tape at autozone and tap it off, and then spray it...looks good, cheap, fast...

wouldn't the vinyl be better? since it isn't permanent.
