Done mine during the weekend. Even though I had a front lip drilled, I didn't had to take out the front bumper. Just drop the panels on the underside and have more than enough space to work with.

What size screws are people using? Any picture that may have detailed your nylon thumb screws no longer load @xn7485.

Covers the crash beam behind it.

FRS doesnt have mustache because the whole grille just starts at a lower point than the BRZ.

I think the OP should put the screen behind. The ones behind look pretty sweet

I'm torn between "Perforated hex" and "Perforated hex XXL" which is 4% less restrictive.
https://www.customcargrills.com/Hexagon-Grill-Mesh.asp

My priority is to protect the condenser, but the XXL pattern looks better to me and will the 4% more open area make a difference in cooling?

I used the smaller sized Perforated hex on my Saab 9-3 before to protect its FMIC and it worked well.

Cooling will be affected. You're creating a stagnant air pocket in front of the cooling stack. My coolant temps have risen a few degrees since installing my mesh.

Thanks for the feedback. Do you mind posting a photo of yours? Most people use the common diamond weave mesh from hardware stores that wasn't designed with airflow in mind and it ends up being restrictive. That's why I'm choosing a hex design - which has the most open area.
