I broke the grill tabs which mount the grill to the surround on my 2004 Deville. Is there an easy decent fix to this? Maybe like 3 small bolts wouldn't look that bad.

I don't know of an easy fix, but let's see who else chimes in. Replacement grills aren't that hard to find- eBay, etc. If I could make a gentle suggestion, update your profile to include whether your DeVille is base, DHS, or DTS. That will make it easier for long timers here to answer such questions.

love JB Weld and use it frequently. Downsides to it: even if you grind, file, or sand it, it's not attractive. Also, it handles some pressures better than others. Re-attaching a tab would be a lot of horizontal stress to put on a small JB Weld seam. eBay.

I have seen them. They are nice and I've struggled with the decision to buy one. It just bothers me a little, that the surround is chrome, even though my surround is chipped a little.

I agree 100% -
I don't mind the mesh grill -
but I hate the chrome "wings" -
