I removed the weight in the back bumper....

So, its not exactly the weight everyone was thinking of but this "weight" actually has an aesthetic improvement too. Pictures dont really do it any justice, maybe its the lighting or lack thereof.

I looked for the real weight when the diffuser was off but didnt see anything.

Generally I'm not a fan of ANY kind of mesh, but this looks really good. I may have to do this. Nice work! :smile:

That may take care of the dust problem with that indent on the diffuser. Where's the DIY? :biggrin: Looks like a very clean job.

I'm wondering if the plastic underpan will fill up with water during rainwater entering thru the mesh too. I would have to think that there's existing drain holes in it.

I think it looks great, and as larryn said, it also looks very well done.

Ah ok, well if its easy enough to cut with exacto I might do it, I did my own DIY grill on the LGT with a dremmel, had to bondo and do a lot of sanding before I could paint it. If I could do this with exacto blade, so much time could be saved, and effort.

Good looking mod, like the others, anticipating your DIY as well.

Is this thread going to die? Still no DIY. Unless I missed it in a new thread.
