How are you guys cutting the kitchen strainer mesh? Mine is in stainless steel and its very hard to cut, even harder to cut the size I want...

Halfords, the mesh for repairing bodywork may be ok for larger scales.

Mega hobby carries a variety of meshes (but in-stock can be an issue)  A seller called Globaltoy carries a meshlike material (its no where near as thick as say traditional P.E stuff and is actually adhesive backed).  That being said, I actually really like the stuff and they have a wide range of shapes (circle, diamond, oval, etc).  they list the stuff as "chrome (metal) decals....and it is actually metal.  super easy to cut and I have had good luck adhering the stuff with premium grade hobby glue when needed.

Hey guys. Stupid question here. How do you guys stick on the mesh back to body? Do you use some sort of glue or other method. Im in the middle of customizing mine and im stuck here.  Thank you in advance.

First off, I love your username. I'm also from kavkaz! Second, you can glue very slightly along the outer edge and use tape to handle the mesh so you dont mess up the glue

www.hiroboy.com does great mesh if you are in the U.K.
Then I tape the mesh in place and use a few drops of super glue to hold it in place.
