    So my truck has a billet grille system on it which I'm going to paint black. I removed all of them except the hood one...the screws just turn and turn?! I suspect I will have to take the whole assembly out, and there are some nuts on the back, correct? How do I get at them? Do I undo the 5 bolts on the inside of the hood, and then it pops out? Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks.
