    grille - bonnet release chord situation....?

    i just put on an irmscher grille (who hasnt?) on my astra coupe. thing is the bonnet release chord is poking out and looking naff.

    is this right? do you guys cut it down? i noticed the edge of the chord (the triangular shaped head) gets cought on one of the verticle walls/lines. dunno if it got tugged out of place when i let the bonnet slam shut or not..

    any thoughts?

    cheers
