Default CH1036103 Installation: Clips Needed?

We are making a repair after having our lower front grill knocked off by road debris. This is on a 2005 Turbo. We purchased an aftermarket lower front grill CH1036103, painted it, and began installation. We thought there was just the one push-in fastener at the top, but upon installing it is just way too loose for this to be true.

There are holes in the bumper which correspond to plastic pegs in the grill. These pegs have holes in them. I am guessing there are some fasteners which are supposed to be inserted from the inside of the bumper, through the holes around the grill opening, and then into the holes in the pegs.

We don't know what these fasteners might look like, what part number, etc. can someone tell us what to go buy, or a link to a schematic of this area so that we can make sure we do this correctly?

Cool Re: CH1036103 Installation: Clips Needed?

My 2005 Dream Cruiser GT vert has flat tabs and holes in the bumper cover where a fastener would go.....the clip type that can attach, but yet move around a little is what I used..
Then....You need to drill two holes in the lower grille body that match the location of those holes in the bumper cover.
Then I would go to you local Ace Hardware and buy the smallest fold over screw and clip set that will work in the bumper hole....probably will not be the smallest.
Then, I used a little epoxy to cover the screw heads....and painted with body color matching touch-up paint. That mades the screws nearly invisible.
You can get these clips at any hardware, and maybe auto parts place.
Here's a link to the type of screw clip....
They are calling them "fold over clips"....
