What does the pictures u have show? What exactly is not lining up?
...lol.. i was hoping some one could tell me.. if something is not suppose to be there or.. i dont know... but after trying to put it on again,... when i try to put it on and screw it... if u close the hood u can see right down in between the top of the grille(its spaced out) ... so i looked at the sides where the plastic molding started, it seems as if they made the measurements a little shy. , ive already cut some of it down.. now i need to cut some of the grill down in between the plastic molding and grille.. i dont know bro.. im about to throw this **** in the trash..

I removed my aftermarket grille off of my old impala once. The screws on the top i installed first. After tightening them down all the way, i still had small gaps on both sides. Its hard to get it perfect.

So, you're putting a high dollar stereo system in the car, but settling for a POS grille?

How does that work?cwm3

you would rather spend $150 or so for an oem to hack up rather than saving $100 to get an aftermarket to fool around with?

you never know along the line he make want to do a billet. i sure wouldnt by an oem grille thats just me. since when did a stereo have anything to do with aftermarket body parts anyway. just sayin'

So then you would be putting a nice billet piece on a grille that still doesn't fit the car right? Ok...

better than spending over 100 for a grille then to mess up on it. then what? 150 or so down the drain. just sayin' to each his own. i had an aftermarket grill myself. are all grilles cut or shaped perfectly? NO

btw a cheap ebay grille is only 26 to 30+ cash.
