Removing front grill brace/spars.

Post by BALDYMONSTER » 18/09/17 18:26

So, you know the front horizontal brace and vertical spars in front of the radiator between the fog lights?

How easy or hard is it to remove this in its entirety?

Does it pop/unbolt/unscrew out or is it a grinder job?
Well those are my principles, and if you don't like them... I have others.

I've heard the front lip will sag if you cut them out.

Anyway, the verticals have black trim pieces clipped over the top of them, but otherwise it's a single moulding with the front bumper. If you cut them away you'll be left with C-shape gaps top and bottom.
