Has anyone installed a vogue grille(the one that looks like the strut, with the 3 sections)? I just ordered it today and dont know of any local shops that do any aftermarket things like this so I going to have to do it my self. Any tips?

Thanks

Any one know where I can get the instructions for this grille? I got mine but got instruction for a e&g grille and not the vogue

But the e&g one has a "base" to conect the mesh grille and and the painted part. Mine doesnt. Did I get ripped off?

Well I put it on today. IT take 2 hour for me to just remove the oem, did want to brake it and the clips are realy hard to remove. Cut it all out and put it on. it took from 7am to about 1pm. And its still sits realy high. Im going to try to fix it tomarrow on my day off.

Any tips on taking the oem grill/vogue off again?

O I all most forgot al lot of people say how "cheap" aftermarket took and yea I liked the oem but wanted something different so I got it. Let me just say this.... the grille looks killer! The pix you see online dont look half as nice as up close with the nice shine it gives of when the sun hits it!

Yea I wanted black but buying a used black car is a no for me. I dont have money for a new one and was scared I would take a used black one home wash it and see scratches everywhere.

so you have this vogue grille? Did your come with the black back/support panel the other e&g grills come with? Mine didnt, i had to use the second layer chrome oem grille part and do some mods to it to get it to stick and it doest look all that great if you take the time to look into the mesh and its a little slanted to the side. And did your come with directions for this exact grille mine also came with direction to an other e&g grille

My vogue grill came with what sounds like yours did. Basically, a piece of paper for instructions (E&G), cutting template and screws. I found it pretty tough to get it perfectly level without cutting too much. Like I said I think these are the only instructions for this, as I looked online and found nothing.

As for your extra badge.....why not try below the backseat controls, on the flip down drink holder???? No badges staring passengers in the face already....just sayin

Here's my grille. I like it over stock.

I would probably keep the extra badge, my wreath fell off and i had to buy another one...

Mha and jt321, did you guys not get a mounting plate to put your emblems on? Did you get the aftermarket Vogue emblem? I just ask because I don't see them on your pics, it looks like you attached them straight to the mesh?

I got mine on ebay. Won it for 410 shipped. It said it was new but when I got it it came withe the caddy emblem on it. It did not have any scratches on it so I thing it was a just for show(pics where of it hang on the wall next to 2 other grills that the guy also had for sale) The guy the sold it seemed to not be the original owner but just selling it for someone else. He had the vogue(the one I bought) as an e&g and the original e&g mesh grille listed as the vogue. When I got it It came with instructions for the other e&g he was selling which lead me to think it was packaged in the wrong boxes(dont know if it a knock off but the box said e&g). Yes it came with the mounting plate but no vogue emblem wich is allright with me(dont like the vogue emblem). I now have the mounting plate on with othe oem black gloss and emblem

chrome molding on the hood is a separate part... probably a dealer only item

I dont know about other grilles butthe mesh on mine was not welded on but screwed on. You could take it off and get it painted or I was at autozone the other day this spray on darkener for chrome
