Mesh Grill Insert Mod

I have seen a ton of threads over at the Jeep Patriot forums where folks have used aluminum mesh, vinyl mesh, or gutter guards to create a mesh grill insert for both the top and bottom openings of the grill/bumper for the Patriot. Here are a few examples of what I'm talking about:

Aluminum Mesh - Grill Slot Mod
Gutter Guard - Grill Slot Mod
Gutter Guard - Lower Opening Mod
Black Aluminum Mesh - All Openings

I am planning on doing this in Black Aluminum Mesh, I just need to locate the materials in town. I couldn't find anything at Lowe's or O'Reilly's, still have AutoZone, Advance, Home Depot, and Menard's to check out. If anyone has any ideas on where to find some nice mesh I would really appreciate it - I'm not really looking for screen door material, more of a diamond design that is typically used for grill inserts.

Just wanted to throw this thread out there and get ideas, I'll make sure to post pics when I get started and when everything is finished.

A guy on another forum I'm on got the stuff for his truck at Home Depot, it's called gutter guard, nice looking mesh insert, his mod turned out great, can't wait to see yours because I really like the idea, though I was thinking about attaching mine behind the grille as I really only need it to keep the bugs off the radiator.
