Billit Grill Inserts

ordered these from ebay, 150 with shipping for upper 7 pieces and the lower section. Installation was a bit more difficult that i expected, if you have smaller arms, that will work better.It comes with decent instructions, the quality of the product is fantastic, and they arrived within a week via ups.

The kit comes with all the hardware, it used C shaped brackets. Two on each vertical section. The lower section had to be adjusted with some spacers to make it look perfect.

I'm about to start the process of the seven piece insert ( I already finished the lower peice) and would dig a tip or two about accessing the area to get rid of the old plastic grill. From top or bottom for instance...

[Edit / Follow Up ]
Well, I just went ahead and did it and it was a little bit of a knuckle buster but I got the old grill out without completely removing anything - I just removed all the Torx screws and the two bolts along the top of the grill.
After doing that, I used side cutters to cut out the existing grill in a couple places so I could reach though the newly created openings and pry off the metal retainers (looking through the top of the grill as I could now pull it back enough to see what I was doing 'behind' the grill)

Once I decided / realized I had no desire or need to save the old grille insert, destroying it along the way only made the whole process easier.

It looks good.
