Thx taco.... attaching it to the grill involved about an hour of me starring at it and trying to figure out a way to do it without the screws coming through ... heh.

I ended up using painters tape to hold it where I wanted it, then used a black magic marker to mark fixation points. I then drilled a pilot hole a little smaller than the screws I used (small diameter one about 1" long). I then used pliers to bend a tab up where each screw was so I could angle it through the ridge behind the chrome on the grill. You have to be careful on the bottom to just barely go through the other side or the grill won't snap back into the front end well. I then used an open end wrench to push down the tabs I had made.

I am at work now, but will get some pictures up later today that show it in more detail.
