Hi guys,
Just to let you know I finally replaced those stupid twist plastic clips that the GQ uses with proper clip on ones.

No modifications needed, just push in clips on original cut outs.

The grill is now firmly in place and screwed in with self tappers. Much easier to remove when needed. AND..not knowing this before hand....the bloody rattles are gone...i never knew most of my rattles came from the grill. Only problem there is....i cant pretend not to hear the Mrs anymore....damn !

Total cost of project...
$22.00 including ..screw washers and clips....the coke was free :-)

I tend to use cable ties for this job, but I'd have to admit that your fix would look nicer. Not to mention easier to remove later.

Problem with having it totally rigid, is that when the car twists/flexes/moves etc it will crack the grill... I used some Case screws from a Computer Rack, they fit in perfectly. But the grill only last few mths then hadda get a new 1.
