  2. Make a 90 degree bend in the grille 1” from the edge as shown. Tip: Bending the grille on the edge of a table or workbench that is perfectly square ensures that you get a nice, straight edge.

  4. Remove the grille from the louver and thoroughly rub the supplied 3M Adhesion Promoter on both the surface of the louver where the grille will attach, and the grille itself. Let the Adhesion Promoter dry for a few seconds, then cut two 3”strips of tape from the 40” roll that is included and place them on the louver as shown below.

Once the grille is in place, you may either cut the excess from the edges or simply fold them over as shown. These will not be seen when the louver is installed on the vehicle.

  7. Test-fit the grille to the louver and make 90 degree bends as shown. At this point, if there is any excess material in the corners, you may trim it off so that the grille sits flush inside the louver.
