where the hell are the metal mesh thingys for the grills? All i could find were the gutter guard things but they are way flimsy and not good quality. Where did you guys find these things?

btw, this is for the RS4 Grill DIY

once again... now that you know that it is Expanded sheet metal... go to the sheet metal section.

I got mine at the local hardware hanks! I need more because when I installed my FMIC I had to cut it all out to fit the IC tubes.

okay... i'll try again but when i told them "expanded sheet metal" they just gave me this dumb look. Would guys know what section... plumbing, siding. Like what it would originally used for? I'm sure if i tell them DIY RS4 grills, they hit me in the face.

If you asked them for that specifically and the person didn't know, they may have been new. Everytime I've ever asked for it, they knew exactly where it was.

It's usually near the tools section or near the aluminium stock. it's stocked in sheets of white cardboard with Expanded Metal writen in huge letters on it.

Whenever I asked, they never knew what I was talking about. I found it right above the aluminium stock, which is usually right before you get to the lumber section, near hardware. It's not in the roofing section.

They are NOT the same. I got it from the aluminum piping/roofing section. It was silver and had to be painted.

I think it is in the stucco/plastering section. That is where I saw it.

In any hardware store it should be wherever they have metal stock at.
If you can the best place to go would probably be "The Metal Supermarket" if they have one in your area. Or any other metal/welding shop that sells stuff. Home depot wants a ton of money for little pieces. We use it for the decks and ramps of our landscaping trailers. Since you only need a relatively small piece you should be able to get a good price since that size would be useless to most using the product.
