Stainless Perforated Rear Grilles; 1 – Chrome vinyl strip

and all road grime and dirt. Then apply the adhesive promoter provided

This is to allow access to the rear of the grills.
Starting with the passenger side, place the appropriate grill into the
valence opening to familiarize yourself with just how the grill is to be
manipulated into the hole and to
determine the correct placement. This
can be done by reaching your arm over to the passenger side through the
drivers’ side opening so that you will be able to reach the grill
behind and use both hands to manipulate the grill into position. A
properly placed grill is one that will align the two back corners with
the edge of the opening. Because the
opening has a slight curve to it,
the center of the opening will not line up. However it will make enough
contact to allow a bond and also will cause the lower part of the
opening to become nice and strait once bonded. The correct installation
procedure for each grill will start by placing them into the center of
the valance hole at the rear corner and swing the
outer end into the
opposite side. Push firmly at the top as you reach to the rear of the
grill and squeeze the grill and valance together. This will create the

the rear of the grill from the battery opening. Place it in position in
the same way as the passenger side and
firmly squeeze the grills back

up to the rear end as it will be mounted (see picture). Once you are
comfortable with how it will fit,
remove the backing film exposing the
tape. Take your packet of promoter and wipe the area where you will be
attaching the trim strip. Carefully line up the strip as you did before
and press firmly across the whole length. Let sit for 4 hours.
