Question J's Grille

I picked up a used J's Grille and I was wondering what you guys did to install it? Do I have to take the bumper off? Did you drill holes or use double sided tap?

yes you need to take the bumper off to take the oem grill out. Then i cut the center section of the bumper(some just paint it black) I used 3m tape on the bottom and 4 rivets on the top to attach it to the bumper.

I was just looking at it and it looks like I could take of the 4 fasteners on the top of the bumper then get my arm in and behind the grille to get it out, is it just those 2 screws holding it in? Also where can I find that 3M tape?

Did any of you guys mount the grille with only tape? I dont realy want to drill holes in my bumper but im a little unsure how well it will hold with just the 3M tape.

I had some trouble with it fighting right cause when they put on the tabs to hold the mesh they left way too much resin. I used a dremmel and slowly grinded it down till it fit nicely.

I didnt take my bumper off to remove my grill.
4 screws on the top (under hood) and double sideded tape.

I mounted mine with the tape first, made it as flush as I could.... then put the screws in.

to take out the OEM grille its just those two small screws on the backside of the grille then those clips right? and then for the screws to mount the J's grille....what kind where they? The ones I had I put in a safe place and now cant find them

The screws that you use are just self taping screws right?

yep I got it all figured out to day. I go the stock grille out with out taking off the bumper. I just removed the four clips on top then reached my hand under with a small screw driver to get the two screws. It was a bit of a pain in the ass but I got it.

They were simple pointed screws. They didnt have the the cut on the tip like some screws have.
