    I guess this is part of the having a new vehicle, having to wait. I knew that I would be in the last group to get my grill. Oh well such is life I guess.

    Its been 100 degrees here. If I can get out of work early I may be able to get it on today.
    wish me luck

    **Editted to add a few pics. First is the grill/surround removed and awaiting the dremel. Second is whats hiding behind the grill. Third is a mock-up of the GC over the stock center section.**

    I think it would look even better with the grille surround gloss black.

    Thanks for taking the time to put up pics guys. The mesh sure opens up the front end - kind of makes the grille look bigger than it actually is.

    (Still waiting for a tracking number in my world):(

    Makes her look meaner. I love it.

    I couldn't sand the plastic stock grille anymore. It was so uglyyyyyyyy. I know it sucks, but it's definitely worth the wait.

    Got any pics of it installed this way? Great idea leaving the plastic back there, much easier that cutting it all out.:thumbsup:
