no problem Al, glad to help.
John, I left tabs on either end and cut slits in the side of the grill, as seen on the first page, and I think the first set of pics. then I have a slight opposite bend in the inserts to keep pressure on them. it keeps them in place quite well.
if I go the route of the entire grill cover, Im most likely going to use the same method, but with small pinhole's around the edge, and just use a single "strand" of metal to slide into it. my main brace would be the Ford emblem.
to me, the look is totally different than the pulled mesh, mostly because the pulled mesh is more of a diamond style. for some applications I can see it being a better material. but for what I was going for, this worked perfectly. the only thing I wish differently (and I may make a change in the future) is using thicker material, this sheet is super thin, I think .025. my preference would be no less than .05, if I can find it. also, Id prefer to use aluminum and not steel, since the steel started to rust after only 24 hours, so I had to remove them and give them several coats of paint/enamel.
