GT3 Mk1 bumper mesh grilles

I am installing a GT3 MK1 bumper on my 02 S. I would like to know where I can find the wire mesh grilles that fit this bumper. Preferably somewhere I can get them quickly before the car leaves the paint shop. They are items 11, 12, and 13 in the attached diagram. thanx

If you don't find them, you can make your own from generic JC Whitney mesh. I hand formed them then bonded them from the back. It took hours to get right, being a single man, I had my bumper cover in my formal living room all winter...Then the second year I removed the mesh. I like the open intake look better..

I had given making them myself a thought. I just figured that Porsche probably made them a little better than I could. I find it interesting that you removed them a year later.

After killing myself to get them perfect, I'd look at the car from a distance and think, man that would look better open and clean, IMO it does. Not to mention air flow is 100% better without mesh, provided one cleans the radiators every couple seasons.
