I make these for $35 +shipping. They're mesh grille inserts held on by zip ties, no bolts and easy installation. PM me for more info if you like.

I bought mine from a supplier, the mesh from HD is too small and too flimsy, leave that for the Civics.

Mesh grilles would look good on the 06/07 grilles considering the fact they left them undone, only have the backing(honeycomb) on the outer section & the inside sections are wide open. The only concern to me would be cutting out the honeycomb & how to hang the mesh screen.

I just finished my grille, its not mesh but kinda like the style of the GMC trucks. Got this punched steel from my uncle and cut out the honeycomb from my stock grille, then screwed the steel into what was left of it. Im going to redo it, the bottom was too short, you cant tell really but id just rather have it be perfect.
