I would leave the trim chrome to give it a little contrast, like you did with the arrowhead.

Looking damn good. I think it should be manditory to do that. The stock chrome ring around the grill looks cheap IMO.

I find duct tape does a MARVELOUS job of holding anything in. Perhaps try that?

but for real, how about pop rivets?
