    A lot of mesh grills are actually drywall mesh... You get it at home depot. Now someone mentioned how it holds up, on my Cobalt it did pretty good, this car may need a brace across, could be something small but strong like a 1/8 metal rod or something like that.

    I kept the stock grille and added mesh from gutter guard. Black small zip ties and all fits great. Sure, it is not so fancy as others, but for me the only purpose was to protect the condenser and intercooler from flying rocks damage.
    Of course from HD as 2014:1.6T mentioned.

    Using same material one could make the big mouth grille, but it may not hold the air flow (resistance) and bend in.
