Home Depot gutter guard turned into grill inserts for the 92-95 body style grill.

Aiming for something like this?

Yar. They came from nowhere. Haro said he was sending me something, but didn't say what. Turns out this was it.

You'll be amazed at the difference. Paint them to match the accent color of your grill. It makes a huge difference. BTW Don't use a hot glue gun. Use something strong like J B Weld. Trust someone who'* had them break loose 3 times before he went for the strong stuff on this :P

Don't listen to Morty..he keeps breaking them off and losing them.

I know who cut them out and made them the right size to fit INSIDE the grill. Don't cut and then hope they'll fit...I'm pretty sure those were cut the right size to overlay the existing grill only.

Yep..got my hand in this one too

Don't use a brittle adhesive like JB weld. Use a flexible adhesive like silicone.

I tried once with a silicone based glue. It didn't work either. This JB welding is holding solid though which is why I reccomend it.
