Was debating back and forth on what I wanted to do. I decided that I wanted to keep it simple and elegant.

I didn't take pictures of the assembly process... Light was working against me.

Basically, I cut out the old grill then used my dremel to smooth out the rough edges. I painted the replacement grills and used liquid plastic to attach it from behind.

So is the mesh curved around the lip of the grill (around back, like 1993_SLEs?) or just sitting in place of the old mesh?

Is it in there good? I would hate for it to come out.

The stuff I used is called liquid plastic... If it breaks, I will be -quite- surprised. It is attached behind the place where the old grill was.

In other words..you didn't fold the edge over to give it more space to hold.
