    Default FMIC Grill Replacement

    Guys... need your advice please...

    I'm going to fit a FMIC to the VXRD. It will sit just below the horizontal crash beam in the picture below. The dimentions of the FMIC will be 28.5 Inches 'end to end' length. 6.5 inches hight and 2.75 inches deep.



    Its been suggested that the bottom 'SRi' Grill will need to be replaced as it protrudes to far back behind the bumper... impeading the FMIC space. As you can just about see in the picture below.



    Therefore, any good suggestions on what I should replace the bottom grill with ?? or how I can manage to keep the standard grill instead of replacing it ??

    Cheers
