Hello all, I bought a vogue grill that's similar to the aspen from strut along with sidevent replacements. Has anyone done the replacement themselves and would be able to clue me in on how long to expect? Any cutting involved? How to remove the stock sidevents? or am I better off letting the body shop take care of this....thanks

congrats on your grill.
if You have air saw and compressor, you can probably do it your self. it's not that hard. before you cut, place Masking tape around cutting area, so paint will not chip. if you are in San Diego area, I can do it for like $40 for you

Do a thread search - I did my vents approx 9/07 ? ? and there were detailed threads at the time. If you have trouble , PM me for helpful hints.

Grill isn't too hard. Did it today, just time consuming getting everything off. I was surprised to find out that I had to take the entire front bumper off to get the grill out.... Damn I shoulda took pictures of the process :(
