GT3 nose grill

I have the GT3 nose on my boxster and I would like the grill to keep out the trash....like the rabbit I hit the other day, the bird I hit at 135 mph and plastic bags, Leaves etc....Okay, maybe they wont stop the rabbits but I need the grill.

Does anyone know where I can get them or do I have to manufacture them myself...

I made my own with gutter mesh from Home Depot. It's definitely a worthwhile project. Last time I cleaned my radiators, there was hardly anything in them.

The question of mesh guards for the GT3 bumper has come up before and it appears no one makes them. Even if someone did manufacture them, I can't see paying $100.00 for something you can make for $6.00.

Check this thread for pictures of how it's done.
How much dirt could really be in there?

I made my own, online the Japanese tuner scene has many choices in mesh. All I had to do was cut to fit and screw it in. Very permanent but looks great on my MKII bumper.
