Before you begin, insure that you have the right kit for your car.
STEP # 1: Preparation
The plastic GM grille does NOT need to be removed
You may wish to further polish the stainless steel to a mirror shine using metal polishing products.
Raise the front of the car and securely support it with jack stands.
Remove the 4 lower screws holding the GM plastic grille to the bumper. The center screw does not need to be removed.
Remove the left and right brake ducting and panel
Remove the two plastic push pins holding the grille cradle in place (2 on each side)
Bend the plastic cradle edge back so you can access the screw holding the grille to the fascia.
Step # 2 : Mounting the Grille
Insert the 4 supplied long brackets ( 2 on the left and 2 on the right) and reinsert the 4 screws. You may wish to coat the screws with lock tight or equivalent
Tighten the brackets from the lower air intake section, under the car. Snug up the screws so that brackets can move from side to side of final positioning.
Place the Euro Grille in position and insure that it is centered Note the Euro Grille is designed to fit 90 % vertically and not on the same angle as the original plastic GM grille. Insure that the grille is snug against the mounting brackets.
Line up the bracket with the Euro Grille and install the small screws. Use lock tight on the screw threads.
Place a piece of duct tape over the screw in order to prevent it from moving when tighten the nut from the opposite side.
Tighten all 4 screws and nuts.
From inside of the grille (access through lower rad opening) position the larger bracket ,to the left or right of the 2 rib of the GM grille, flush with the Euro grille.
Once in place peal the covering from the adhesive strip and apply the bracket to the vehicle. Allow the adhesive to dry and install the screw and nut.
For all black powder coated Euro grilles you may wish to apply some black paint to the heads of the screws.
Reinstall the cradle pushpins, the brake ducting and the brake ducting panel.
