Use the plastic trim removal tools and be careful, afaik it just clips into slots in the bumper cover but you don't want to gouge the paint or break the clips. The grilles aren't exactly cheap to replace with the proper factory ones, especially the two piece piano black ones.

You know that looks pretty good. You did a nice clean job with that, too. It gives me ideas.

That is the name of the paint color, Ford calls this shade of green Frosted glass.

It is a very good looking color in my opinion.

First post for me. I just got a Sterling Grey Hatchback and I think I'd love to do this in red. I was hoping that someone had already done it, but no luck. Will post back if I can talk the wife into it...lol.

Just do it real quick to see how it looks, then you can always just take it right off! No harm no foul!

That's the great thing, it's cheap, you stick it on, it stays, you don't like it, you just peal it off, no damage. Or if it does get ratty, you just peal off old, stick on new! Or change colors!

Love it. May copy it if the weather ever warms up. Stupid winter.
