ok so i went to home depot, then walmart, then the two hardware stores in my town. and all i find is the long piece of gutter guard about 2-3 feet max, which is not long enough to cover my lower valence!

cant believe it right in the gutter section they only have the once piece sections, I cant find the roll of the stuff ANYWHERE!

should i buy it online or what?

Honestly? I don't think you should trash up, and cheapen, your sable like that. Though, I've NEVER been a fan of that gutter crap.

i found mine at either home depot or menards cant remember but it took me forever to find cause it was off in one of the corners hidden...

on a side not i am thinking of taking mine off of the sable i like it on the contour but you can see too much behind it on the sable and at certain angles you cant even tell it is there it looks like my normal grille with the badge taken off. but i have to find new stuff, what i am getting at is that in some aplications i think it looks good but in others it looks like crap... its cheap though so whatever

i have always loved it, mark can you suggest something similar that has some more thickness?

i am going to use it across my lower valence (i dont care much about that because its barely visable) but i want to do the grille nice.

bear with me -
I presume this is simply a cosmetic thing with no other added benefit, right?

I think you just have to buy a couple of the short ones and line them up next to each other. Somebody else with a G4 did that a while ago.

There are various sizes of expanded metal. Not sure how small it goes. The stuff I work with is a bit too beefy for lower-valence duty.

ive used heavy grade mess its called stazi mesh on the contour forums cause this guy with the last name of stazi, made all the stuff at his company and would sell it, very thick but yes, too great for what im looking for.
