I should be receiving my grip grille thursday from c/3, they color matched it for me in black.It is also coming with black mesh,in my opion I think it looks better with the mesh behind it.When the mesh is not behind the grille it does look like its missing something.

Did you install it yourself if yes how hard was it.Did you take off the hole bumper or just insatlled it with it on.

hi I put the chrome grill on my ride just yesterday, I think it is the mesh that sets it off. I also did the instal with just me and the wife and found it really easy...

Is it easy as everyone says!Dont know much about cars so dont really want to mess things up.One of our members on the forum dads ownes a shop and said he can do it for a fair price.I would like to try it myself but alot of times in the long run it cost me more.

I guess it could have been easy if I wasn't so impatient but first you got to drill those tabs on the wheel well off which I cut the little nipple piece off first pardon my french and then drilled right in the middle of those tabs and they pulled right out (no problem) then they say pull the wheel well back had some problems there unscrew the bolts holdin the front bumper (10mm) on I unscrewed what I thought there were only two then NOPE oh there's one more NOPE another after about hour 3 (only cause I coudnt remove the wheel well) I said forget it anyways and had someone put it on and I did get the VIP300C B cover eyelids and they perfect with the grille and Frankie we gotta see you grille when you get it on

The second photo shows the grille sticking out thats were the last four screws must be installed.

Looking good frakieo....yea as all suggested....take the fascia off....much easier.Then you can install mesh in lower ports if you have extra

Thanks! I appreciate it. :) It's just about where I want it now. I am talking myself into a polished intake to go with the stainless Airhammer for the underhood accent. That just looks sweet.
