Hi GMS, I am looking for ways to replace the front aluminium mesh. I figured you probably know how to remove these. Can you share the details of how to remove? Furthermore I might be interested in buying your aluminum meshes as a replacement. Are these black like the OEMs? Thanks for your response!Front looks like this:

I also made rear flank IC and air intake meshes and rear outlet meshes. Here is how it looks:

Right now I'm working on front hood alu mesh for brake reservoir cover on the left side and washer fluid on the right side, so entire car will have same mesh pattern. This parts are a bit more complicated as they require a frame that is bolted to the front hood then, but we are not far off.

Here is how OEM parts look like:

As there are slight differences between body panels and bumpers from car to car, so also OEM parts are glued, we will stick with the same technique to keep the weight down and prevent fitment issues, so for those who will be ordering the parts please bare in mind that this is a job recommended to be carried out by professional bodyshop. it's not particular hard to DIY, but removing the bumpers, flanks, removing OEM meshes and then securing GMS meshes with adhesive is quite time consuming and handling with adhesive is a messy thing. GMS mesh is made of aluminum and easy to trim with small pliers. All the GMS parts are precut to fit but are not shaped, as the fitment, as mentioned, slightly varies from car to car, so making an universal shape that would exactly fit all the cars is impossible.
This mod is intended for those who want to save some weight (-1.3kg front bumper, -0.7kg rear bumper, - 0.2kg rear flank, -0.3kg front hood mesh set) or perhaps make a slight change in appearance.
