I was getting ready to put my body kit on, and was going to mesh it and realized....I have no idea how im going to hold it on....what are you guys doing to hold the mesh on?? Only thing I thought of was maybe fiberglass?? Anyway, any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Yep, fiberglass holds it just fine
Small strategically placed zip-ties.
Personally have seen flexible metal fiberglass'd in on the other side of openings, that way it's removeable at will, yet hold.
Hell pieces of metal coat hanger, paper clips (wouldn't hold the best LOL), etc. but you get the picture.
I had seen a episode of Tricked Out, they used high quality silicone.
They bent the mesh about a extra 1 1/2 inches aroun the openings and pumped some all around it and held on good.
i like joe's idea, i'm about to install mesh on my front bumper and i think i'll end up fiberglassing something like a paperclip every so many inches around the openings on the back side. that way if i hit a bird or whatever on the road, i can replace the mesh easily.
I glassed pieces of wire into my kit when I put mesh in, it works great. Just make sure to bend a right angle into the part of the wire you glass in to make sure it stays in place. If you just glass it straight, it might work it's way out.
On my 98 Z24:
I glued "L" brackets with holes drilled in the ends of them around the openenings, then used zip ties to hold everything
in place. Works great when you want to swap out that old mesh, just snip the zip ties & it's out!
I can Repaint or replace it quickly!!!!!

If your kit doesn`t have the small metal tabs to attach your mesh ( which it should ) then a few daps of urethane or silicone should hold it in place !

you needing to do this? I used the silicone method as well and its holding strong still. Bent it longer and wrapped around the gap, caulked the crap out of it.
i used this stuff called goop and i also used it for my ww lip kit works wonders
ZIP TIES AND /OR A DAP OR TWO OF URETHANE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THAT.
Dude, stop with the caps lock. Seriously.
Second, why did you bump this thread just to comment on it? LOL
I was expecting a new question.
