Agreed, looks like a good solution. Although the perf. metal is "prettier".
Remember that perf. metal can have goodly sized holes in it so it can "breath"

Ya, Lexan, while being easier to see through is a solid chunk of clear stuff,
doesn't breath well at all. Expanded metal cannot be used as a "replacement" would have to be placed over the existing faceplate. While perf.
metal could be used as a removable faceplate...being exchanged for the
"regular" grill work. Excellent points!
