wow, that would take forever.

anyway, you could just hot glue the mesh on, that would be the best idea probably, since the panel is plastic, and in case you ever want to remove it....it would be simple

If you use something like speaker cover fabric, attach one side at a time with silicone adhesive, and work your way around slowly, keeping it straight and level.

it shouldnt take to long to cut out, i think im going to be using gutter mesh from homo depot. i might go with the hot glue gun idea so i can take it off later if i wanted to...thanks any other suggestions?

The silicone stays fairly flexible, and is easy to scrape off if you need to. I've used it for mesh, screen, and for windows.
