I had a really good closeup shot on a satin silver metallic civic, but the thread with that picture is long gone now (I can't find it by searching). I'll try and find it again. In the meantime here's one from Optauto.com

Have you seen either grill "in the flesh" on a car? I'm not saying which is better, but everyone likes mine. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

Where the plastic thingie used to go near the radiator. You can't put it back on with the altezza grill unless you do some cutting on that black plastic thingie.

Can someone help me with what its called?

Oh yes you can put it back. All you have to do is shave a little off the lower side edges of the altezza gril, and slip it down into the bumper. Then you put the grey plastic pice in place and fasten it. Then you put your bumper with grill back on. Fits perfect.

None of the original parts have to be cut or modified.

Bart.. whyd u take the bottom grill off?
u know what i think.. the bottom grill looks off because its inserted in there. i think it looks better behind the bumper. but that means cutting and painting those 2 fang thingys. what u think?

I didn't get it. I'll try it when I get the grill painted. Hey Alex, did u talk to your friend about the painting? Cost? How long it would take, etc...Do u have your car back yet? A meet is going down this Saturday. Check the thread on the mid-atlantic board.

The lower grill is not an exact fit. I may have to move the locating holes forward to make it work. I cannot get both ends of the grill go fit flush at the same time. But it's too darn cold to do it now. It even snowed here in Alabama lasty nignt.

No way am I going to cut or modify any of the OE parts. If I can fit the grill, ok, but if not, it stays off.

What happened with mine is that the grill did not want to go all the way down into the opening in the bumper cover. This mad it bump against the protrusions on the gray plastic part that goes behind the grill. I just filed off a little off the lower outside edges of the grill until it fit right. Walla, no gap, and I have the original gray plastic piece intact and in place.

Once you have the bumper off and fiddle around with the grill for awhile I think you will see what I am talking about.

Yeah I know. When I got the grill I installed it right away and didn't bother making the grill cover fit. I'll take it out again after this weekend and I'll try what you're saying. Thanks man.

Hey Bart, you're right. It fit flush! Didn't even do anything to either the grill or grill cover.

Got it painted already alex, thanks for the painting lesson. Very amateurly done though but it'll do the trick.

heh... I guess i am the only one that likes our upper grill the way it is...

I would concider putting in the bottom hole but i don't like the chickenwire that some of them are made from. Besides if i get fogs soon then i would have trouble mounting them.
