It looks great but fitment is terrible. When the grill is lined up and screwed on it sits between 1/4-1/2 inch to high and i cannot close the hood. Also not all 6 screws line up. A few of them are off by about 1/8inch (some are too high/low and some are to far right/left), which is not bad but being that these screws expand theres no room for play. I also had to expand the screw holes themselves with a flathead screwdriver just to fit them in. Not sure if i got a bad batch or what. I knew i should have gotten the type D
Hopefully i can exchange
Which tabs? I was thinking the same but in these pictures its only held up by the screws, nothing else. Even if i did shave the tabs down it would still sit to high since the screws are what keep it in place. The only way it sits flush is if i just rest it against the bumper but then the screw holes dont line up
Oh ok i think i see what you're saying. But even still it would sit too high. Those tabs are not making contact with the grill.
I don't see why I would have to. Importshark website says no modification necessary. The tabs are not what's causing it to sit high as they don't even touch the grill. Its has to be the 6 screws because that's the only thing holding it up. The grill is basically 'floating' above the bumper
Not sure if this applies to Cf but when I installed a few FG parts I used a heat gun on low setting to fix some fitment issues similar to you'rs. Looks like the 1st 90degree bend under the screws is incorrect. The heat gun will make it more pliable, just use it on the back side and don't concentrate on one area too long to avoid yellowing of the clear coat.
Ive got a feeling ive got a dud lol. There are 6 tabs on the back to are supposed to slide into the tabs on the bumber. If this is true, then the tabs are facing the wrong way and theres nothing to slide them into. The 6 tabs line up perfectly with the 6 mounting points that the oem grill uses, so you would assume to use the screws from the grill right? Wrong. There are no holes in the tabs for screws lol.
Dont mind the paper. im using because the camera couldn't pick up the tabs as for the
lack of contrast.
This is the lower portion, back of the grill, face down
The only way to slide the tabs in would be if they pointed straight into the air rather than back into the grill.
I could put the bottom on first but there'd be nothing holding it in place. The tabs line up to the 6 mounting points that the oem grill uses but that's it. No way to mount it. Can't slide them into anything because they face the wrong way and can't screw them in because there's no holes
