If you have a chrome grill I high recommend you buy some blue masking tape and cover all the cover or you will scratch it up.
To remove this I used the Dremel tool and cut relief cuts at the corners to make it easier to remove the corners of the lip.
DON'T CUT TOO FAR and GO SLOW AND TAKE YOUR TIME!
After I cut the relief cuts I took a razor and ran it along the edge between the painted and gray using the painted area as a guide to cut a straight line. Use a brand new blade. Do a couple of passes appling light pressure.Don't try to cut all the way through on the first pass after about 4-5 passes the the knife will cut all the way through very easy.
USE CAUTION WHEN NEAR THE CORNERS!
It is very easy to slip and cut to far into the painted surface(I did this but, the cuts will sand out)
Ok, sorry for the delay. I was bizzy on Monday with the grill and removing my rear bump stops and it got to late to finish th thread.
So here we go
after I used the dremel tool to remove the high spots I sanded the entire grill with 240 grit sandpaper to remove any scratches and razor slip ups.I also sanded down the seam mark form the mold when it was made. (where the hood release handle and spring is on the upper part of the grill).
Then I sanded the entire grille with 320 grit sandpaper.
I then test fit the grill.I mounted mine so that all bars would show.(see pic)
