    Fitted irmy grille but quite flush

    Hi guys and gals

    I have just fitted an irmy grille to my coupe G and it doesnt seem quite flush to the bonnet, on the right side at the top. Just curious if anyone else has this or is there a way round it.

    Gonna have to modify the bonnet catch tomorrow though.(Already removed the left side of the catch)

    Any help and suggestions of the best way to get round this would be appreciated or am i just being too picky...

    Very pleased with it though.

    Thanks everyone

    When you say not flush, does it stick out or is it too far in?

    Didnt have this problem when I fitted mine... are all the screws tight? As you tighten the screws they pull the grill closer to the bonnet into grill area!

    What do you need to do to the bonnet catch?

    AFAIK (and I've fitted a few!) all you do is remove the LHS of the 'sticky outey bit'

    Oh, and scrape off the big white arrow too!

    The bonnet catch sticks out too far, when bonnet is down.

    One screw thread on top middle of grille has become threaded so gonna try get a longer or thicker screw but the grille fits into the bonnet ok its just the lip at the top just doesnt seem quite flush on the top right hand side..
