    Hi guys!
    Newbie here...been lurking for awhile...waiting for my baby to arrive. Finally took delivery of an '11 MGM DCSB TRD Sport last week and decided it was time to post.

    Sorry this is a crappy first post but...

    I tried searching but couldn't find my specific answer. I just mounted an AVS Bugflector which doesn't touch the surface of the hood...which is good. But it looks like the shield is making contact with the edge of the grill on each side where it dips...and at each end the edge is making contact with the headlights. I'm worried that this may be an issue later....especially where it's touching the grill. I don't want any paint rubbing off! Anyone else with an AVS have these issues?

    I've managed to add some bug guts to the front
    They just look cool. Somehow the bugs still manage to hit the windshield.
