Ensuring that you took the right steps to make sure that it doesn't rust as well..cus' those things rust and you don't want a BROWN mesh...i'd say a can of black rustoleum would be fine.

well i think the choice of silver or black depends on your car color. like me for instance i have a beige camry i think either one would look good on it.

If you want your grill to be noticeable leave it silver.

Are there other mesh forms you can get aside from rain gutter?

chicken wire? (please dont) or buy the real stuff. you could also walk around a hardware store and look for material.

thats what i've been doing. like at places like home depot but a name of a what kind of mesh would be better so i can go around asking for " rain gutter and stuff close to it" for example.?

just saw your cardomain link. the grill right there is nice. i think black might look a little better. cause your grill is kinda chromish.

If it's silver, it's going to stick out a lot, but it will look really our og place with the color of your car.

Black will hide it nicely. And depending on what paint you use, you might not even notice it. Some black paints show more than others. I'd get something with a gloss.
