Question Broken hood support… thing

I thought the front grille of the hood had gotten a little more flexible as of late. Now that I bothered to take a look, I noticed that the plastic piece has broken off around the mounts. Take a look. I apologize for the craptastic picture, but is where the plastic grille meets the metal hood. (I'll post a better picture tomorrow when I have sunlight.)



Now, I suppose I should get this replaced; but tell me — what is that thing called?

before replacing it, you could always attempt to glue it back together with some plastic epoxy.... i think that part is referred as the grille. i think they are expensive to replace...

Eh...in your case I'd opt into the JY run during the meet and pick one up. they'll probably laugh at you when you ask how much for it.
