Grills for the bumpers

Recommended Posts

I got the bumper off and have added the middle radiator to my 06 C4S, it was one of the easiest things I have ever done, plug and play.

I started to make the grills out of stainless steel mesh that I bought from Pegasus Racing (http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productselection.asp?Product=3641) size 24x36; I will use stainless steel any chance I get. I was curious about coating the stainless. I thought about powder coating or painting but because the stainless is a woven mesh it will chip or crack if I flex it. Then it dawned on me, has anyone tried the Plastic Dip as a coating, it is a vinyl coating that is used to replace the handles on tools.

When I am done I will post pictures of the molds I made and how I formed the stainless mesh.

Any thoughts?

It's an interesting idea but I think it's going to be too thick to give you the look you want. How are you going to apply it ?

They offer it in a spray, I applied 3 coats today and it look pretty nice. Will post pictures in a few. Dealing with two sick kids.

Here are a few images of the spray on coating to the stainless steel mesh. It worked really well; it came out with matte finish. The best part was the mesh is still very flexible which made the install nice because there were no worries about chipping or scratching.
