Thanks! Your pictures look great. I also have a SBP, so now I know how it would lokok on my van.

Looking forward to your DIY instructions. Please make sure to include any 'gotchas' you have ncountered. Thanks.

It's been 8 days since I sent payment. Has anybody else taken so long (besides Oleo)?
Give Ted a call. He's a nice guy and will track it down. Don't email though. He seems to ignore email.

Or let a rock "scratch" your radiator.

You know you want it on... Maybe this picture will convince you. :D

Since we just purchased our Ody a couple of weeks ago, we missed out on the group deal for Mr. Grille.

For those of you who installed, did you need to take the bumper off? Does the Mr. Grille scratch the bumper finish and/or the edges of the opening?

Thanks!

It sounds like it just mounts to the front of the existing grill, correct?

Can someone post closeup pics of the grill with the nylon ties?

Also, if you've had to cut the grill for the front plate, can you provide measurements for where the cuts were made?

The Mr. Grille is a hard aluminum pretty much just nylon tied to the existing grille. It's going to 'rub' some. But your alternative, as the post directly above yours states, is a rock in your radiator... it's happened to many already. I'll take the minor rubbing over that any day. Plus it's down low, and with all the abuse the front end of a car takes anyway, it's not noticeable to me...

See this thread for follow up by some users with Mr. Grille installed for extended time...

Mr. Grille after a year?....

Some folks did take the front bumber off. I, however, only took off the main grill section and it gave me plenty of room to get my arms down in there to tie the straps nice and tight.

The grille does rub a little, but as Reinhold said, I will take the little bit of rubbing for the protection that get.

Dan,

A few questions:

What is involved in removing the main grill section (bolts, screws, adhesives)?

Approximately how long did it take to remove the main grill section, install Mr. Grille and re-install the main grill section?

When you re-installed the main grill section, does it fit as well as before you removed it? (i.e. sometimes things never fit the same after removing it).

Any suggestions/cautions you can think of should I use your method?

Thanks

To remove the front grill, all you need to do is to remove 10 or so "push-pins". To remove these, just use a flat screw driver and slide this into the slot and pry up. Once these are started, use your fingers to pull the center pin out, then take the base out. There are three behind the grill as well. Once this is out, you will still have to get your hands inside to pull the tie strips tight. To remove the grill it takes at most 10 minutes.

Ooops, sorry I missed the question, daa28893. As chan_man said, it only takes about 10 minutes to remove. It took me about a half hour to do the whole thing. You might want to take a look at some intructions where the grill is removed to see what pins need to be taken out.

Use step 3 in this guide to show you which ones to remove. And then find the ones that are still holding the main grill in place.
