Talking Saleen Grill Install

The install went great. Didn't remove the bumper, the hardest part was getting the two tabs on each side that hold the sides in. They are the ones by the headlights. These were a pain and took me a few moments of rest in between because I was getting frustrated. The tabs that hold the bottom were easy. No tabs broken:hihi: I can deffinitly see how removing th bumper would make things easier but I didn't want to go down that road.

The install of the new grill was simple. The clips it comes with look cheezy so I added a total of three body pins to the bottom portion of the grill. Yes, I had to drill holes but it's in a place that will never be visible with any grill. The clips for the two side tabs on each side were a pain to get in place due to minimal space. I ended up leaving the bottom tab on each side without a clip. The top clip and other hardware is enough to hold secure.

Fitment was great untill I started to put the radiator cover back on, that's when I noticed that I had to shave off all of the downward protruding pieces. Easy job with a small saw.

Overall a 9 on fitment and a 8 on eaze of install.

It took me about 30 mins plus I added 2 push pins on the bottom for more support. I didn't have to shave anything.

Do you have a gap on the bottom where it meets the bumper or did the plugs solve that? 2 of mt saleen grilles have had large gaps and I am having a hard time (mentally, not physically) drilling into my bumper.

Yep the gap was there. The push pins solved it. You'll never see those holes.

That dam radiator cover just wouldn't sit flush.
