    Just bought E&G mesh grille.. Need help

    I just bought a used fine mesh grille off of ebay. I looked up installation instructions online and it says I need to trim something and paint the outer edges. Can someone give me some details on what exactly I need to do to make it sit flush and firm? I removed the factory grille and before I rush into this I want to make sure I'm doing it right.

    Re: Just bought E&G mesh grille.. Need help

    Hello,I posted this same question awhile back. As far as the trimming you'll see on the E&G grille it has the screws along the bottome edge? Well where that sits onto that plastic channel ( on the car ) ,once you have the tape installed, you'll notice there's not enough clearance for the screws, basically just need to notch out enough room for that, not hard since its plastic. As far as painting I didn't notice any reason or need to so that I'm not sure.

    I installed mine but it's protruding out on both corners, it's not sitting flush with the fender...it's noticeable only when you focus on it

    I bought it used and it appears i am missing the brackets that attach the grille to the radiator. So the install doesn't look possible, any suggestions on what to do ?
