You have a nice flat surround on the outside of your grille to tape to. The coroplast should work for you. When you decide how much grille opening you need, I still would cover the entire grille then cut a crosswise slot an inch or so wide to line up with the centers of your fans. With a narrow slot, it is easy to add to or subtract with tape when needed. After my grille block was duct taped on I masked around the tape real tight and painted the tape and the block at the same time. Looks fairly decent.

Don't wreck your paint job. We all gotta start somewhere.

Good Luck. CO ZX2
That's a good idea. I'll take a look at it this weekend....maybe some creative use of the zip ties and duct/electrical tape are in order =P Hopefully we can do some good without causing any heat-related damage.....

And I'll be careful about that paint.....It's still in mint condition, at least until I start going nuts with the Herculiner to help combat the rust.....
