    What does it look like installed correctly? I need pictures and any instruction from you who know. I have the repop stuff from drake, and the clips, show me how this is supposed to work.

    Wow, no one has pictures of the grill lacing? I don't understand how you can bend it around all those curves in one piece? Do you slit it? Cut darts in it? Anyone?
     
  3. Billy I do not have pictures but I was able to install it without cutting it. It will flex around as it goes. Can get pictures if you need them.

    You didn't go around the radiator cap arc. Is supposed to? I m not running the hood sides so I am just install it around the upper grill area.

    I don't have a photo, and it's too cold to go out and take one, but I had to make relief cuts to convince it to curve around the top piece. I squeezed the little black rivets over with a pair of vice grips. Like fordcpe I didn't go around the top either, because the hinge cap (bracket?) would be in the way.

    I have a 1 piece hood so the bracket is a non issue. I'll try a couple of things and see if I can make it around there. Thanks guys
