Talking Nissan Mesh Grill

For you track junkies who would like to keep crap out of your front opening. I installed a Nissan MotorSports Mesh Grill. Part number 62851-RTZ40. List is $438.89. Phone, 888-833-3225. Took 6 months for me to get this thing. The install is simple. Drill 4 holes. And use 2 screws to hold it in place. It's shipped flat. You have to gentle bend it to fit the bumper contour. It took me about 2 hours of bending, and fitting to get it right. Once I got the contour the way I wanted it. I sprayed it with Plastic-Dip.

Note: This is for the Nismo bumper only.

$438 for chicken wire (i know it's not literally chicken wire)?! To have to contour yourself? Not worth it man. I can see this as a DIY project for sure.

As far as functionality goes? I'm sure it gets the job done.

I love the look. Just can't imagine paying that much for mesh!

I said it lists for $438.89. Did I pay that much for it? No.

Looks good!

I had the same thought when I installed both the upgraded Power Steering Cooler and Oil Cooler from Setrab. However, I purchased a black powder coated grill and mounted it behind the bumper. Total cost was about $45.

Good idea. I had a rock hit my oil cooler in the season championship race and it leaked oil all over my header and caused a fire.

Considering the upgraded coolers, I also removed the outer front pieces outside the fangs and added the grill there for added air flow. It actually looks like it's stock.

I'm in no way affiliated with this company, however, here is the link to the product I purchased.

For the DIY crowd, Spohn did it the cheap home-made way here: Spohn's Journal
