I didn't know you could improve on the SILVER Ridgeline. WOW. She sure looks great!!!!Tex's Ridge said:
Hey there VV96..glad you like it, I didn't think gold would look good on silver at first, but gold is real 24K, and it has a very beautifull and shiny luster that really stands on silver! If you browse for "aluminum expanded metal sheets" you will get quite a few hits. ijust called them extrusion because it is stamped into particular shapes. get the thinnest sheets and small openings (1/2 inch). The aluminum sheet is stiff, but can be cut into shapes with a metal sheer. Get the size sheet that measures at least 32 " wide by 24 inches. This will be enough to screen all the openings. For the grill up top with the H, I cut two pieces (I think they were 8x14) and used the same screws that secured the existing grill. (BTW) you have to remove this grill to change the H). The two bottom (one over the other) I strips long enough and wide enough to cover the openings. What I resorted to mounting these was to drill 1/6" holes on the sides of the openings and secured the screens with black tie wraps. you can find these tie wraps in the electrical dept of Home Depot or other hardware stores. Good luck!VaVet96 said:I really like what you've done there. I'm especially interested in the "diamond aluminum extrusion". Sorry to show my ignorance, but I'm not familiar with the term. I've been concerned about those areas picking up stray rocks too - could do a lot of damage. Where did you find the material you used and how did you secure it? It looks great!

I emailed HAndA Accessories, asking if they stocked the Ridgeline emblem in GOLD, to go with the rest of my emblems. I want to place the "Ridgeline" on each side over the front wheel wells. They came back and told me they added it to their stock line!! I will be ordering two!Tex's Ridge said:
