Dave, I attached angle brackets to the bottom of the bumper with self-tapping screws then bolted the lawn edging to the angle brackets with washer and lock nuts. So far it has been working wonderfully. I attached the coroplast side skirts the same way.

For those who may be interested, this is how I made my coroplast side skirts. I didn't have a piece long enough, so I joined pieces together with this method. They have held up very well so far.

Nice work. I hit a deer with my car 16 months ago and all it did was crack the front grill. Now I'm finally ready to fix it by blocking it off like you did. It's 100% blocked, right?

The upper grille is 100% blocked. The lower is fully open. Today the high was in the upper 80s, and my fan turned on a few times. Won't be long and I'll probably take off the grille block during the heat of summer. It gets quite hot down here in the Southeast.
