    need some help here, I'm trying to figure out if I bought crap. Has anyone else had problems installing their billet? Now, I have to admit that i went a cheap route and found a cheap billet on ebay. After hassling with the grill for a few hours, this was the best I could get. Let me know.

    Lol that looks like mine when I first bought it! I too got one of the ebay ones, fit wasn't the greatest but I managed to get it in there.

    I ended up using a piece of 3'' ABS Pipe that I had laying around at work and rolled the grill back and forth to create more of a curve until I got it to sit nice and flush. You'll need to apply a little pressure but be careful not to press to hard.

    I ended up giving it to another member, TR3NT, and he had to do more bending and cutting, but then again he was recessing it not having it sit flush.

    After I rolled it, I think there were a couple spots that I grinded down a little as well just FYI
