    (me no taiko nor sifu here, just wanna share some info)
    saw some in brothers kelana jaya last time, second floor.. nice la.. but damn expensive.. forgot the price edi, but i know its expensive..

    actually i plan to do this too..
    but i was thinking of getting those so-called net from the hardware shop..
    u know those plastic fence they put outside the shop?
    buy 1 with yor desired pattern and size.. cut it out according to the shape u want, then finish it up by spraying it with those plastic spray (saw these in ACE hardware)

    thats jsut my suggestion

    i got this netting from hardware shop today, but to my disappointment when i tried to put it at the front grill...it looks like empty, no grill at all from far...the net is just too fine. Bought it for RM6.50, 2 x 6 feets.

    The hardware shop-type netting is absoltuely fugly on the car, it's too thin, too fragile, and i'll say again, ugly. It is cheap, though.

    Well the cheapest i've seen for a cut-to fit piece was about RM25, that's what i paid Kakimotor in Sunway for a piece of the "real" hard <> shaped grid maze stuff. If RM60 will buy u 1ft x 3ft, it should do 2-3 cars, depending on the size - it might not.

    Some hardware store should have those harder netting, just that they don't stock it, because rarely got ppl want it. So if u found one, please inform us!hehehe

    Thoes netting we mentioned has got big opening that allows water and debris to pass through easily. Maybe you can try those very fine netting ppl use to keep mosquito away?
