I'm thinkin of taking the stock grille, replace the mesh part with a denser mesh. After tat sanding the shiny part of the grille and paintin it matte black. Haven't got down to doing it yet though.

Nice install man...thats exactly what i was looking for except im going to paint my mesh gold ;D
i think it will look nice against the black car. I was also thinking of installing mesh in the hood scoop somehow and the lower bumper section...should look pretty bling. Any chances of getting a writeup on your install?

ok wat did was:
1) of course take out the bumper and remove the front grille.
2) remove all screws and seperate the chorme frame and the grille.
3) in order to keep the subaru stars, i use grinder to cut the grille ( can see from the pics )
4) fix it back on the chorme frame
5) cut n trim the wire mesh, fix it in the grille.
6) drills small holes at the egde of the grille and secure the mesh with small cable tights
7) tape up those areas whch u want it unpaint then paint it. ;D
8) lastly fix it back....

I got the "sport" grill, and put it on myself - now before I did so, I simply removed the two screws holidng on the Subaru badge, and now its just a very plain, clean grill. Its not everyones taste, but I like it
