Hi all,

Even after watching iNaths video on installing the grill, I still can't seem to get it in. It's almost like its not big enough?! No matter how hard I try to get the hooks in the bottom lip, the bottom lip just rises straight over the hooks regardless. Now obviously I'm doing something majorly wrong so I was just wondering wether there is some more tips etc?

It can be an utter pain to get in but it does fit just needs a load of persuasion!

You need to make sure all the clips are in, my adivce - get the top and sides to fit, then the bottom can be pushed in clip by clip if needs be.

Yeah! I had one problem, the bottom right corner just wasn't going in no matter what but once it did, it looked like there was no way that the top would go in. Almost looked like it would have to be stretched! Yes sure, I will take a picture tomorrow and put it on here mate :)

Ah that looks smart. Always nice to see something a bit different.

Do you keep checking out the new-look front end. I know when I first fitted mine I just kept looking at it, even in queues to pay for petrol etc, just kept staring at it lol.

It really looks cool in Blue, totally like it should have always been there. The Eastern market designers have a better look for the Fez.

I do actually mate lol, still not bored of it yet! Keep glimpsing at it when I can, annoyingly I've only seen my car pretty much in the dark since fitting it, so despite the crappy weather I think I'll give it a nice clean at the weekend :-) I should hopefully have quite a bit of a gloss black jobby coming up soon so I'll put pics up when I get around to that too :)

Thanks mate, Im glad that I persevered with it and fitted it in the end, I think it sets it off nicely. Looking back to the old grill it's amazing how much of a difference it makes!
