    i read somewhere..think it may have bin one of those paw mower modding guides...well it showed putting the mesh in place, then bending around the rear of the apeture and fibreglassing it to the inside of the bumper!

    Not sure if this is the best way..have never tried or looked into this sort of thing, but it may get ya onto the right tracks!

    Make sure it's perfectly clean before you attempt this or you may find it goes missing one day. A good wipe down with white spirit will do the job.

    Try a glue gun, i'm sure that'll be easiest, bend it round the apeture out the way
    and blob some hot glue in place, as said above 'make sure it's a clean area' before
    doing so, may be worth giving it a light rub with some sand paper to ease the bond.

    Good luck.
