I recognize those pics. hehehehe.





If you want a fully secured grille, you'll need to go and get all the extras posted in those pics, namely all the Jnuts. You'll also want at least those 'eye brows' above the headlights. Covers the ugly gap you'll see.

You can get those sliders/retainers straight from ford. Might be spendy. Or just PM me....I've got like 4 total sets.
