Added upper and lower grille inserts..

Was a pain in the butt, but I finally got it done. Looks good. Only part that bothers me is that just under the left side of the license plate (as you're looking at it) there is a tiny gap that you can see. That side lacked holes for me to secure it that the right side had. Have to try to figure a way to secure it better cause it's gonna bug me. But all the less I think it looks much better. I had to remove a huge dead dragon fly from under there, lol.

Re: Added upper and lower grille inserts..

Thanks.

I was thinking last night to drill a hole in the spot that there isn't one in order to secure it. I'll take a pic of the area tomorrow to see if there is anything running through there that can be damaged (wires and what not). I don't think there is because on the other side, there are holes and I can't see anything.

Re: Added upper and lower grille inserts..

Also, if you look at the right bumper, below the area where the grill meets the headlights... you can see a part where the light kind of looks different..hard to explain. But something hit my bumper and I had to repair it, did it myself. You can hardly see it now except for the bump in the bumper which can only be fixed with a new bumper.

I bought the grille inserts from Automotive Authority on Amazon.com, and painted them black. They are inserts, I did not want to cut the grille. Costs $37 shipped.

The lower part is a $6 piece of masonry sheet from Lowes. It is a pretty big sheet, can probably make 4 or 5 out of it. Also painted black. I wish I would have made my own upper inserts with this sheet, but oh well.

I also bought a can of primer, gloss black and clear. $5 each, so $15 total.

$15 + $37 + $6= $58. But you could use the masonry sheet and save $37...
