immensely helpful thanks bud, particularly the bit about bending that lower central flappy lug so the grill slots iin in the middle. Took a while but got there. The sad thing is, where the old grill was lower than the ST one and had obviously been rubbing on the paintwork, there is a 5" line of worn paint visible of the bumper in the middle so may have to get that looked at next as T-cut didn't fix it.
EXCITED , will be doing this soon !!!!
hope i don't break it !!!
