Question How to install lower grille


I like the look of these stainless grilles but the price was holding me back. So I found one used off Ebay for 150 in good condition. I finally got it but I don't have a clue how to mount the lower grille. It seems like the top of it should fit inside that hole in the bottom of the bumper cover but I can't get it in there and it doesn't seem like you can separate the black plastic bumper from the stock lower grille. Any help would be appreciated.

update- After fooling around with it for a while, I think I have it in place. The problem now is that it didn't come with the mounting bolts or anything so I'll have to figure something out.

Got it installed. I'd post a pic but my camera's batteries are dead. Sorry for this waste of a thread.

What I did was use black zip ties on spots where a vertical bar and horizontal bar are welded together. They are nearly invisible, unless you are real close. I zip-tied to the slots in the plastic grille behind.

Putting my lower grille on was hell cuz you had to hold the end bolt behind the lower grill to attach the screw to it. If you didnt have a 5 year old size arm to slide between the buper and the radiator. it was hell!!

I also looked around all over the net to find a stainless grille, and my prayers were answered when I found one on ebay, used, for 150$ so I had to snatch it up. They were for sale on cruisermotorsports.com but I just looked and it seems that they were recently removed from the site. Must be discontinued. Sorry I couldn't help. Happy hunting.
