New mod, Bumper Mesh for TRD bumper.
When I put the foglights in the outer holes on my TRD bumper, I removed the stock ones. This left 2 holes so I filled them with some mesh. It's a small mod but nowadays other than a header, all that's left are the details, since I'm probably not going to go too crazy with strut bars, ICE, etc. grin

Ugly hole

Noticed a bit of yellow showing through so a couple quick shots of flat black to clean things up.

Measure twice cut once. Cut the mesh to size.

Bent it into shape with some folding pliers.

Some masking tape to hold it in place.

I often talk about "Goop Automotive" this is what it looks like, FYI.

Gooped up.

A couple shots of the finished mod. grin

Nice and clean. No more holes!

Ask yourself one question. Is the juice worth the squeeze?

At this one dealer, they had some there. There's kind of a tuner store inside the dealer with lots of aftermarket stuff. Here's a pic of the box. I think it's from Germany or something.

Thanks for the comments guy. I really like how it looks. It will be a bit of a pain to plug in the foglights when I take the bumper on and off now but it's worth it!
