Grill options

I had a rock take out my black grill inserts. What are some options that other members have done. IDK if I like the billet looks, I was thinking of doing mesh like GC owners.

Just posted on the other thread that awhile back I fabricated a mesh grille insert out of fireplace screen. I really liked the mesh- still do, actually. Use it all the time for various projects! It was just basic steel screen powdercoated black with 1/8" square openings. Trimmed it to fit with tin snips and mounted it behind the OEM grille. Looked really good in a subtle way- just slightly better filled in than the factory inserts alone. Probably still have it down in my garage, actually...
