I think it looks pretty cool too! Did you just cut and remove the old section with the little holes and place in the mesh?
What about painting it either white or silver, give it a bit of contrast. Just an idea...
It is an aluminium color, just my digital camera is a cheap POS and you can't tell in the picture Yeah, I just cut the old center section out (used a dremel), then put the leaf guard in behind and drilled in those stainless steel bolts in. Took less than 30 min. I wanted some sort of emblem, but decided it looks great like it is. I might try one of the new mazda symbols to see what it looks like. Since I work at a Toyota dealer I get any parts I want 10% above cost, should be pretty cheap.
