    your local hardware/home improvement store.

    Its called expanded metal. I got some for my truck that is much finer than that (ie, it doesnt LOOK like expanded metal) for about $1.76 at Home Depot. the stuff I got was actually for covering gutters to prevent leaves and sticks from clogging them, so look for "gutter gaurds" if you want the small stuff. I always get people who ask me how much i paid for my grille.

    Cool

    As mentioned, hardware stores. Also "import" car shops may have it already cut to the car you want it for. I take it you need it to protect an intercooler?

    Also try looking at specialist car shops, (the kind that sell customising parts). I know Rolls Royce will sell you their stuff, for a couple of hundred, does look really nice though.
    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?

    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

    Hmmm, when I get a jeep that might look rather nice. Does anyone think it looks too "Rice-ish"? I do think it adds class, not rice value.

    Cool

    Mesh on an Honda, Acura, etc. that is not being used to protect an intercooler = rice.

    Mesh on trucks is fine.
