    sport grille mesh height

    i searched and found someone bought a 16x48 sheet of mesh for it.
    i'm just wondering if i can get away with 12x48?

    does anyone know what the final height of the mesh is after cutting to fit?

    Let me see what size mine is. You pay for the shipping. I never got around to use it and I still like the look of no mesh on my sports grill.

    thanks KOT, the height of the base grille itself is 9"(ish) so i will have enough mesh no matter. im thinking the mesh will be around 8" after cutting.
    guess that's what i get for moving my fingers before checking.

    Make sure the mesh is stainless steel or it will look like garbage after a while...I used chrome plated stainless steel mesh when I fabbed my own sport grill...wasn't cheap, think it was about $90 for the sheet IIRC.

    I can't speak for the whole state but yeah. Actually in most of Portland it's 55. I think I remember one stretch in southern Oregon that's 65.
