Honda Brio is not equipped with screen (wire) mesh on its front bumper, at least in Indonesia. This unavailable screen mesh can protect your AC condenser from road gravel, and can save a lot of money.
In this DIY, I'll show you how to make your own screen mesh for $10 only.
What you need:
1. Wire mesh with 1 cm aperture, $4.
2. Flat Black spray paint, $2.
3. Some zip ties, I need twelve of them.
4. Cutting pliers
First, you need to take the front bumper off, you have to pull some bumper clips and open some nuts.
There are four bumper clips.
two nuts under fender
two bolts under license plat.
And there are 14 bumper clips and two nuts under the bumper lip (sorry no photo)
pull gently from the inside out.

And finally, front bumper is removed successfully.
You need to cut the wire mesh using cutting pliers. 75 x 18 cm is the most fitting size.
I like to spray the wire mesh flat black.
Bumper from the inside, before the wire mesh's installed.
