Lower grille chrome

PostPost by: Marcus+2 » Fri Jul 05, 2024 9:46 am

That grill is a bugbear of mine - the fixings are awkward AF as it is difficult to hold in place. I add cable ties to the grill and pull forward to hold in place.
Also I have painted mine black and mounted silver letters/numbers registration which, IMO, looks good.

Jono, the hinge idea sounds brilliant: I have long used zip ties at the top thru the screw but need be cut and replaced each time I need access.

Pls send a photo of you hinge..thx..Tony

Looks great Andrew. Very nice spacing between the stock bumper and new bling piece. :D
