Default Grille change

I bought an add on grille from grill4you on e-bay. Not a bad price but there were some minor problems with the install (the directions were not so great) I wrote the company and told them I was hoping to send some picts to help future owners with the install.

Problems I encountered were
1. lower grill side pieces...the plastic turbo air piece had to be removed to fit the grill pieces..not so easy but doable
2. the center piece is a very tight fit (I scratched my grille a little in the install..just be carefull and it will go but it is a very tight fit

If you remove the button screws from the bottom of the car that is the easiest way to do the lower grille pieces

3. Upper grille pieces....they do not have the same back mounting as the lower pieces and I would recommend that you get the same back mounting pieces as the lower grille and the mounting problem is gone. They currently have screws that go into the new grille pieces that you have to drill into the stock upper grille pieces....the problem is that the new screws are bent slightly and when you drill the holes they do not line up with the curve of the new screws...if you use the same set up as the lower pieces there will be no problems.

Give me an e-mail if you want more help..it will go pretty easy..


God bless,
John

I did not have to remove anything on the lower sides.

It was a pain, but I got it done. I will need to use some touch up paint on the center.

Great post John. Thanks.

I'll post a pic after I wash and detail. Just got the GM turbo tune and Magnaflow, too!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
