When I finally got tired of walking up and down every isle at Lowes I finally asked a guy if they had any "expanded metal". He took me to the isle with the assorted 'long pieces' and in a flat box stuffed along side, was a packet of expanded metal that they advertised as being for a grill. It appears to be galvanized.
I put 4 coats of Krylon on it and used the plastic clips from the electrical area.
The sticky crap on the back isn't worth a hill of beans. Scrape off the stick'em and use a decent glue. I used Gorilla glue because I didn't have JB weld.
Zip tie them on and you are all set.
It took two pieces of metal to completely do the grill. One full sheet took care of all but one opening, so I had to buy a second one to fill the last slot. It think that it looks great, and it worked like a charm.
Kudos to the guys that came up with this mod!
