Diffuser mesh install help...

Has anyone installed mesh to the back/inside of this diffuser type? For about 5 minutes yesterday I was careful trying to position some mesh and without scratching anything... and figured maybe someone has some insight on how to install the mesh.

Thank you.

Curious, what would be the purpose of installing mesh to the rear diffuser?

To keep the racoons out.

It’s a....

.....”modesty skirt” that hides the muffler from sight.

Might be easier to hit the muffler with some BBQ black heat resistant paint .

Maybe so....

...FWIW, my "50 years of 550 Spyder edition" has those metal screens on the rear and it looks great.

But wouldn't that only keep raccoons out while driving backwards?

Otherwise they'd be kept in after getting scooped up, correct?

These aren't ordinary racoons. No sir. They're California racoons. They swing both ways...
