INSTALLATION TIME 1/2 hour per side

 

Before you begin, insure that you have the right kit for your car.

 

                              

 

STEP # 1:  Preparation

 

Raise the car and securely support it.

Remove the front wheel from the car from the car.

Remove the side access panel (See Diagram)

 

Thoroughly clean the two grills using a degreaser.

 

You may also wish to further polish the grilles using a metal

rubbing polish.

 

Cut the adhesive strips to fit the tabs on the side Grilles

 

The larger section of the grille will be facing towards the bottom of the vent opening. For the stainless steel grilles, insure the finished side is facing out words. Adhesive strips will be placed on the finished side.

 

 

 

 

Text Box: Side access panel

 

There are several New GM clips that need to be removed. Using a flat head screwdriver, gently raise the head of the clip. Once the head of the clip is raised (releasing the lock),

Remove the clip. (See diagram below)

# 2

 

 

 

 

 

Remove the push pins that hold the wheel well access panel in place. Remove access panel

 

 

 

 

Once you have gained access into the fender area, you will need to remove the inner fender vent box (Black).  This box is held into place using double sided tape (2 sections). Just break the tape bonds. You will need to remove a screw mounted to the black box and a bracket. (Mark the area where the tape was mounted, so you can re-install it in the same place.)

 

# 4

 

 

 

 

Once you are satisfied with the position of the grille, insuring that it covers the entire open grill area, place a bead of automotive goop or equivalent around the inside perimeter vent opening. Remove  the adhesive strips backing and apply.

 

Apply the Automotive Goop or equivalent epoxy directly on top and to and sides of the metal tabs. Insure that the epoxy incases the metal tab and approximately 5 mm of the surrounding panel surface. 

 

 

The adhesive strips are only designed to hold the grille in place while the applied epoxy dries.

Failure to apply the epoxy could cause the grille to become insecure.

Insure that there is no excess goop runoff from the outside of the vent!

 

Let the grille sit for approximately 1 hour in order to let the adhesives set.

 

Insure that there is no excess epoxy runoff from the outside of the vent!

 

(MAKE SURE THE AREA WHERE THE ADHESIVE STRIPS ARE PLACED ARE FREE OF OIL AND POLISH SOLUTION. USE A DEGREASER OR RUBBING ALCOHOL.)

 

 

Re-install the inner fender box via the adhesive tape included in the kit. 

Text Box: Incase the 3 metal tabs & adhesive strips with epoxy.

Text Box: Apply automotive goop to the inside perimeter

# 3

 

 

Using a pair of pliers, bend the 3 tabs so they fit flush with the fender outline.

Also bend the top section of the grille (area between the two top tabs)

Approx 60 degrees in the same direction as the two tabs
