GT/CS Fascia and Black Retro Billet Grille Installed (pics)

First off here are the pics. They suck, I'm sorry. Apparently all the rechargeable batteries in my apartment no longer hold a charge and the backup set of AAs that were supposed to be good through 12/2017 failed prematurely. I'll get better pics soon.

Now, the install of the fascia was very easy. Just pull the front up on ramps and follow the directions. You will need a 9/32 socket, which is pretty uncommon IMO. The only one I had was 1/4" drive lol.

The billet grille was a total ***** to install. You have to separate the stock grille insert from the shroud, and its almost impossible. After ****ing with the tabs for 20 mins I just cut the bastards off. You then have to drill holes into the putter grill at some impossible angles, and stang a good chance of having to bend the tabs into place (the instructions even mention this). It looks great once you get it sorted out, but the install is snake PITA.

You have to re-use the part that goes around the insert that has the pony/foglights. It's a major pain to get out. The holes are drilled in that flimsy piece of plastic while you hold the new insert in place.

From what I understand, the Saleen grille replaces the entire assembly.

The instructions here might make a bit more sense.
