This stuff is great. I used over my headlights, over the license plate. It really looks cool. I havn't done it to my E.
I am in protest. The first thing I am doing is lifting and tires but I wait........................................
Got everyting from the depot.
The platic gutter guard was easy to bend I just stuck it inside the bumper between one of those slots. Then I rolled it out to cover the openeing and attached the top with zip ties then the bottom. The entire project took about 10 minutes. The hardest part was to get the square part on the zip tie hidden behind the bumper. All I had to do was twist them till it faced the back.
I purchased two pieces, but one piece is more than enough.
I put my on with black cable ties and cable ties anchors, they designed for outdoor use. I regretted that I didn't painted the screen black, it would look much better.
I also went to Home Depot. I utilized a decorative metal screen. I cut it to size using tin type cutter. I then spray painted it black with Rustoleum and wire tied it on the outside not inside of face vs. behind it.

It been a while since I purchased (HD)the gutter guard but it made of aluminum, it got two stainless clips near each corner. The gutter guard happen to be to perfect width and lenght, I believed airflow won't be a problem at all. Since it a stiffer material you have remove the bumper to install it, it look like it was OEM.
I was at Menards few week a go and saw some more screens, they'r not gutter screen. I didn't look closely but they might work too.
I guess plastic gutter screen will keep leaves and other bigger stuff out, but
plastic become too soft when heat is near.
zarathustra, I got some aluminum gutter screen and i am going to try the bumper removal this weekend. The plastic, once I had it all attached, had some corners and edges where it could easily bend in if a rock hit it(on the very tops, corners and bottom)
I am going to lay down a soft blanket in the garage in front of my E and remove the bumper, attatch the aluminum and the put it back.
