    Got a bloody great big hole in my A/C condenser from a stone, which is gonna cost me a lot to get fixed.

    So it doesn't happen again I need to some black mesh stuff, anyone know where to get some that isn't such a rip off as halfords?

    Had a quick look on ebay but couldn't see any in black.

    Location: SX, unfortunately

    Find somewhere that deals with scrap computer equipment from businesses and try and nick a mesh door off a data cabinet. Some of the designs are really nice.

    I am pretty sure halfrauds sell it... You may have to spray it black though.

    They do, but a £25 per strip and me needing x2, that's £50, way too much for a bit of mesh.

    What he said! I think you'll have to get it in grey, but spraying it is easy! Dirt cheap compared to hellfrauds too!

    They definitely have it as that's where I bought some from. There are loads of different styles to choose from too.

    Kingswood Autoparts also sell it but I think it's about £20 there, from memory I think it's about 1.5m x 0.5m, dunno if that'll be big enough for you though

    Whatever you buy watch out, it will rust like mad unless its good quality.
