Have you done this on your previous/other vehicles? What did or do you hope to prevent?
I have not done it before on any other vehicle, but I have actually hit a couple of birds before in other vehicles. They can wreak havoc on a radiator. I installed a rhombic ABS black mesh on my 2021 TLX. I like the all blacked out look of the grill now and hopefully it will lessen the amount of road debris, sticks, rocks, etc that are hitting the intercooler and keep leaves and other trash out of there. My car is only two years old and today when I had my front bumper cover off you could really see all the hits that the intercooler has taken. Its nuts that it is that beat up in such a short time.Have you done this on your previous/other vehicles? What did or do you hope to prevent?
I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to not see in the lower grille since the photo's exposure is keeping it dark.Now its blacked out and you can’t see the intercooler from a distance anymore.

Any pics of the mesh before installation and/or during the install?
The removal was not too bad. The hard part was getting it back on. Total pita.Nice job and very ambitious! Did the removal go as easy as the installation?
