    Default ...and also changed my lower grille!

    After fitting the SRi headlights yesterday, the GSi/SRi lower grille I ordered came in today - so on it went. Very straightforward job to actually replace the grill. The old grill just unclipped and the new one clipped in. Just needed to unclip the temp sensor/wiring from the grill.

    The biggest job was removing the front bumper. Thought I might get away with removing the four 'spreader bolts' on the underside of the bumper without having to jack it up. Realised I was being a bit optimistic, especially as the car has been lowered!!, so out with the jack and axle stands!! Made life much easier.

    I only needed to change the lower grill as my Signum (ex demonstrator) already had the GSi/SRi bonnet grille fitted when I bought it.

    So, piccies.....

    Before


    After


    Just finishes off the front end nicely. Gives it a bit more of an 'aggressive' look I think.

    Cheers m8. I think Scooby has the edge with his fancy new style Irmscher grille though!! He'd better keep an eye on me if we're ever at a meet together!

    Thanks to the other guys for complimentary comments!
