    I snapped the tab off of the radiator shroud trying to do this install. $126 later I'm ready to try again tonight. Let's see if it goes better this time around. I have also noticed the fitment at the top with the new grill, the bumper, and the radiator shroud isn't great. I kept ending up with a gap on both sides of the shroud where you could see behind the grill frame before I snapped the screw tab on it.

    One positive I do see with this kit is that you can swap your mesh out to anything you want which I like due to the way it just clips on with the metal tabs.

    There are directions for install at: M&S Replacement Tuning Grille for Hyundai Veloster Turbo [PAINTED] just scroll to the bottom of the page.

    Here something that will help man those factory supports are weak

    Not sure if I'm thinking of the same thing but that's why screwed the grill frame to the radiator shroud using the tabs on the frame. No gaps... cept for the hood.

    I may have to get/ make some brackets if thesee new headlights don't solve the problem.

    I busted the tab on the radiator shroud that screws into the bumper cover. New shroud came in and I got the grill installed. I used exploding rivots to attach the grill frame tabs to the radiator shroud. I have a 2013 so I don't know if there is subtle difference in the way the bumper curves, but I still have a small gap on the one side of the grill frame and radiator shroud. I built bumper supports to hold all my shit up nice and tight. No gap between hood and grill. Someday, I will get pictures of everything I've done up here on a build thread. It's only been 2.5 years since I joined the forum, haha!
