Pros: very easy to cut, very cheap
"This is a fantastic product. It does exactly what you expect and is very easy to cut with wire cutters or strongish scissors.
To bridge holes in car bodywork simply (or not so simply!):
1) Remove any rust (using a grinder and sandpaper).
2) Clean the area with Halfords Surface Cleaner
3) Cut the required shape from the aluminium mesh
4) adhere the mesh to the bodywork using Isopon P40 and leave to set.
5) Fill the area with body filler (I personally use U-Pol Fantastic) and leave it to set.
4) Sand the filler smooth with 300 grit sandpaper (don't use wet sandpaper as filler soaks up water).
5) Apply several coats of high-build primer (I recommend U-Pol) allowing it to dry between coats.
6) Sand the primer smooth to the bodywork.
7) Clean the area again with surface cleaner.
8) Apply 3-5 coats of paint (matching the colour can be difficult)
9) Apply 3 coats of lacquer.
10) Enjoy!!!
There are several videos on Youtube detailing the above processes that are extremely informative."

"As recommended, used to block holes up to stop mice coming in. Easy to fix into shape and onto walls/door frames/skirting. Probably good for stated purpose too!"
