Well it's on my new RR Coup. After installation, I decided I did not like the horn showing so I relocated it to the center strut below.

Here is Roxie's facelift.

Before the horn relocation (She just came home today)



Relocation



Horn out of sight...



Back together again and clean!



Much better now... Now honking horn in the mesh! I will replace this with the freeway blaster soon.

Enjoy

The grill looks very good.
I have ordered the RoadRuns Grill for the sedan. And I was wondering the best way to get the old grill off? Do I have to take the whole front bumper off? Or is there an easier way?

you know... I was not a fan of this grill until I saw it on your car. Your photos give me a much better Idea of what it will look like. You should send your photos to them as they are much better than the ones they use to advertise.

Nice job! looks great!

I have small hands so it was easy. You need a #2 phillips stubby and a 7mm wrench. There are two tabs (They are red) that hold the old grill in place. They use pinch and release tabs and the whole thing is off and on in twenty minutes. The instructions say to remove them but you can never go back to stock if you do. I personally like the color inside the black on the edges.

You will use a 7mm small wrench to secure the grill through the trim tabs at the bottom with the nuts/washers included in the box. They are small so don't loose them!

Just take it easy and be patient...The results will please you! Enjoy your grill!

@ anybody who has the RR grill:

how is the paint job holding up? for those who have one and live in snowy wintery places, is it still in good condition after the winter?

Overall pretty good. We even had a huge blizzard this past winter too. I got mine in gloss black and live near Chicago. Had a few minor chips in it from salt but nothing major. I went to a dealership and got a bottle of gloss black touch up paint. Looks good as new. No complaints.

The horn is just held in place by a bolt. Undo the bolt from it's original location and bolt it wherever you like. Take a look at his pics, you could do something like that.
