    Home depot. They are right next to the zipties. I used 1" mounts and 4" zipties.


    I put Goop adhesive on the back of the mounts. DONT use the tape that is on them... does NOT work :)

    And thanks. as you can see theres about to be Long Travel in that mix ;)

    Heres another way to secure your grille material, some angle brackets and screws. [​IMG]

    I put a little epoxy on and after it set up I went back and fiberglass them in. I tried ripping them off as a test and there is no way they're falling off!! :D
