Gloss Black Front Grill replacement

At first I was thinking of getting my grill wrapped in gloss black vinyl, but got quoted $180. I did some searching and found this on ebay:

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/322102342998?...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Anyone know how difficult it would be to replace? Since it's only $400cdn shipped, I figure this would be a better option than the temporary vinyl.

@mikes would probably know. He's removed the whole bumper from his Civic before: https://www.10thcivicforum.com/forum/...ve-made-2.html

If you're not mechanically inclined like me, maybe plasti dipping would be an easier option.

adding to the install/removal instruction posted above, it helps to have somewhere to rest your bumper that won't scratch it. Even some cardboard under the points it rests at will be good enough. Some people lay down full sheets.

Thanks for the diagram. The bumper doesn't actually look all that hard to remove now that I can see where all the clips and screws are. Where did you find it?

Hatchback sport grill on coupe. ~$200 in parts from dealer. Direct fit, but still need to take the bumper off.

Link? Post photos as soon as you get it on!

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

Pics for sure, some of the overlays use thick tape and just sit to high. When not done right look terrible, when done right look OEM.
