[HELP]Removing grille shell

might sound stupid but does anyone know how to remove the grille shell on a 03 ranger? Im trying to install my new billet grile for my 03 Ranger and I can't figure out how to get the damn grille shell off. It seems like theres these really tiny tiny tiny tiny bolts holding it on and I cant fit any tools on them. help?

In a nutshell: Help me install my billet grille

pull off those "covers" between the header panel and the radiator support, pull out your headlites and corner lights. You'll see two clips on the bottom in the center of the grille, and two clips under each headlight location. Pull out carefully. Should pop right off. Mine pulls right off no problem. Of course those clips are still attached to the header panel...that's not how it should be. I pull the clips, then reinstall then in their spots on the shell.

Hope it helps.
