I just purchased a Classic Weave Grille from E&G for my SRX, which looks like the STS-V grille. They sent a black mounting plate for the emblem which looks terrible in my opinion, so I want to attach directly to the grille for same look as the factory STS-V/CTS-V grille.

Question: Is the emblem mounted directly to the grille or is there some sort of plate behind it to keep it mounted securely. Thanks for any input, hopefully for a weekend install.

The black mounting plate (with a plastic crest on top) is for cars with Adaptive Cruise Control. The radar used by the ACC sits behind the emblem on the grill, and the plastic emblem lets the radar signal pass through unimpeded.

Thanks guys. I mounted it up this weekend using the factory adhesive and then used some tape from behind to ensure a secure attachment.
