I bought locally a 1-piece (rectangular) metal mesh GG kit which came with the same anchors & zip ties. The proprietor said they'd work fine to hold the metal, but after l cleaned the grille with alcohol and applied the squares, he reccommended that I put a bead of adhesive around each anchor. His other advice was not to pull the zip ties too tight.
Also, when I applied each pad, I "wet out" it's own adhesive tape by holding pressure on each pad for about 10 seconds.
I was going to go the Lowes/HD route, but decided that the larger mesh opening would be better for air flow, and that metal would better resist flying objects and UV attack. I got the kit for about $48 because I wanted the large mesh (+$10) and black powdercoat (+$10). I will post a photo, when I shoot a decent one. The black looks great against the Anvil. Since I am no part of the business, I don't think that I'm violating Forum rules by listing where I got the kit. Matt at CustomCarGrills.com. He has a YouTube for the JK.
I did this just last weekend, and I used JB Weld for the added adhesive.
