I attached mine with three screws through solid pieces in the grill. Two on the sidea and one through the top of the "H". look in my garage for more pics. I put up a detailed shot so you can see the fasteners. Going over the "h" gives it a nice smooth profile.

I removed the upper and lower grill blocks.
The mpgs went down below the 40's into the 38 mpg range.
By your lead, I constructed a coroplas upper block,
only I cut out the H symbol like were discussed earlier.
I did cover that with the black duct tape I used to hold it on.
The mileage really hasn't recovered.
So I'm going back to the bottom block, and opening the top to get some flow into the radiator, as the temps here are promising to rise.

I used cardboard and ducy tape to cover it first. I would try that to see if you like the results. I was happy with mine, so I then made a nice template out of cardboard and placed it over some plexiglass I got from Home Depot($10) I cut it to fit and drilled soem holes where I could mount it to the existing grill. Hope that helps.
