Thanks
What about some bluey bling would it be suitable or over the top? all the old threads have links which are no longer the same, is there a good type of chrome adhesive strip to use on the lower grille.
Anyhow here is the installation video:

I also fixed the headlight while at the bumper, there was a fuse holder inside it (not standard looking) i have no idea why its there but i kept it there, but just soldered the connections instead of using terminal blocks which corroded.
