Very nice!

I will do a search on how it is done. I've been seeing that on alot of photos here but wasn't sure what it was called.

the hardest part is pulling the plastics. it's easy
go to lowes and pickup some gutter guard or purchase high dollar mesh off the net

pull plastic

cut to shape

pickup epoxy while at lowes. I used a putty type material that turns to steel. wal-mart.

let dry.

put plastic back on.... here's a pic with some duct tape hold'n em in place while it dries.

thanks for the compliments.

Been thinking lately that I needed to do the same mod. I've read about it and seen it on bikes in the pics, just need to go ahead and do it. I think its a nice look. Great job by the way! Wasn't sure on my 06 LE if I would paint the screens a white or silver though.

the screens come satin grey. white would look good. Jump out there and do it. It doesn't take long. just take your time. have a pair of wire cutters (dikes) handy. the mesh is real soft and easy to bend. good luck and post pics when your finished.
