I opened the hood ... access to the lower section is right there ... I cut my piece of mesh 5" by 30" (rectangular) and then slipped a few RED TIE-WRAPS and looped them around the original grille openeing .... voila ! Done ... took a whole fat 10 minutes or so ! I will try and get better shots of it this weekend ... as you can see I did those at night !

ciao for now

Stainless piece of mesh, I would say about 1/16 till about 1/8 think ... It was a bitch to cut ... funny part in all of this ... found this in the trash about 2 years ago ... used some on my Jeep Grand Cherokee and now on the Durango !

I will try and get some pics from the Grand also ..... as mentioned, will get better pics of it this weekend and post it up for you guys to look at !

I've got some of that material around. It's pretty heavy stuff and I thought that it would reduce the airflow too much, probably somewheres in the area of 40-50%. Looks good though.

I do not think (personally) that it will restrict airflow that much .... there is a WACK of it coming in from the TOP ... I doubt 50% ... more like 1% .... :biggthump But then again ... time will tell !

Ciao for now .

Scott ..... I did not take anything off at the bottom section .... I simply slipped the mesh underneath ..... and tied it down with RED tie-wraps.
As far as the top grille, I plan on going behind the black grille and not cutting anything out ... we will see this weekend If I have time to complete it ...
check out ....

Looks awesome!

I'd love to see pics of the homebrew hood latch. Might inspire me to actually do this.
