Yeah didn't take me too long either. What did you use to do the pieces around the "R." I got tweezers.

Theres really no way to fix them just have to buy new ones.

I didn't take measurements. I tried but it was too hard to get them.

You really don't need them. Just take the chrome stripping and hold it up against the grill piece. When you had it the full length put your finger on the bottom end where to cut and cut.

Your going to mess up a bunch of times but there will be plenty left over even after all the mess-ups.

I have a couple pieces that are a little too short but even from up close you can barely notice unless I point it out.

Goodluck!

are the ones produced now made of different plastic so they don't fade as easy. Or are they leftovers?

I hate my yellowed corners but I don't want to spend on something that might not look good for long.

Goodluck! Make sure you get some pics up too.



Andy I think there was someone on here or regalgs that had it on for like 3 years or so and there wasn't any yellowing. I'm not sure if its different or if they just last that long before they yellow.
