Default Mesh Inserts

Some people have those mesh inserts in their fairings. I've heard people say "go to home depot and make them yourself" but it seems that if a person actually did that, there is no way to get the curve right.

Are these mesh pieces sold? if so, where?
Do people actually buy mesh and form it themselves? If so, how?

I havent seen them sold anywhere, everyone just makes them. Buy the type of mesh you want and cut out a rectangle large enough to cover that hole and just hot glue it on the back of the fairing or use whatever type of adhesive you want. If you mean so its curved with the shape of the fairing so its like ( that just push it in from the back a little. It shouldnt be too hard to do.

use the mesh gutter covers -- they're 'pre-curved'.

fairly cheap mod & you can pre-paint them for some extra coloring
