The paint / coating on the mesh grill on my GP front splitter has all started to crack . Is this covered on warranty ? If not how much does a new mesh cost ??

I doubt the mesh will be covered under warranty, and I don't think you would be able to buy the mesh on its own.

It looks like it clips in so don't see why you couldn't .

It's an optional extra that comes as part of the kit, I'd be surprised if you could get it on its own.

It is just held in with clips, but it means taking the bumper off to get to it.

It's more like a plastic coating that's on the GP mesh and if you get a stone chip on it the water will get into it and cause it to lift off.

Rang honda it might be covered on warranty but we will see . They said you can't get the mesh it's part of the kit , seems stupid if you ask me . It's all flaked and brittle like a chicken wire fence that's been well and true my weathered.

Someone has just told me their 3 week old gp splitter has started to rust!

What have people done to sort this? Plasti paint seems an easy option, but cba stripping the old paint off. Mines brand new so want to sort befoe fitting
