    Hey guys, got a question. The original owner of my truck pitched the OEM hood scoop insert to put in a billet piece, and I want to replace it with the factory piece. I ordered the piece, and the two rivets that hold it in from Toyota, but I'm not sure if it's as easy as just pop riveting it back together? Anyone done this? I'm doing this so I can get a HomerTaco grill and keep it simple and clean looking. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Check out my website under "Installation". It has some directions and pictures of how to do this. I include "plastic rivets" with my carbon scoops, but you may be able to find them at a hardware store. Good Luck!
