Well done
I have two washers on the back, the hook sticks out just enough to avoid damage to the bumper should someone have to stick a hook on the tow bar.

Here are some pictures of the tool for removing the trim tabs. I also included pictures of one being taken off. Does anyone have a cheap source for the trim tabs, I'm missing one and would like to purchase some spares.

I need two now. I'm willing to purchase them if someone has a source with a decent price.

GAH!

I got a ton of these white and black push in/spacer tabs. They look almost the same, but aren't. My bad... I was hoping I could help you out.

I saw the simple trim tools, but opted for these since I did the grille and GFX which necessitated removing both the front, back and rockers. (from Advance Auto Parts)

Had no problem getting the Fascia off using your video.
I did not need to watch part 2...

However, I did forget to put the locking clips on the new Grill ...
(metal tabs with teeth that go on bottom plastic tabs of grill)

Thanks for the video, gave me the confidence to attempt on my own !!!

I watched and followed a different guide to removing the front bumper on YouTube that failed to mention the two 7mm bolts by the side markers at all. Needless to say, the bumper didn't want to come off very easy. I figured the guides on the bumper may have just needed a little muscle and the bumper would come right off. I rewatched the video a few times to doublecheck my work and ended up breaking 1 of the small plastic rings around that bolt before realizing I was following a diy guide for how to break your bumper. Wish I would have used this one instead!

Let me add my thank you for the video, GTAHVIT....I would never have tried this project without it, or at least something similar to it. Took the facia off today and my grille should be here within the next day or two so I will finish the job then. I was a little surprised that the four bolts inside each side were not tighter than they were, they seemed to loosen quite easily. I'm already dreading installing the top two bolts back in.

Yeah I thought the same thing on those bolts... I expected them to be a lot tighter...

Should be good to go from here.

A million thanks to you GTAHVIT. So glad that there are people around like you who donate so much time to help others.

You should have your own car show. You're way better than that dude with a mullet on spike, hehe.

So I installed my heritage grill today, after watching through your videos it was a piece of cake. A couple things to add though.

It is easier to remove and replug the wiring plug from inside the passenger wheel well once the inner well has been dropped or removed. With the nose on. No fumbling about when the nose is half off.

Take note that some of the plastic push pins along the top of the nose (front edge of hood) may have some shims under them to help level the nose up with the hood. Remember how many and which plugs they go under.

Thanks for the extra tips... When I pulled mine off I had forgotten about the harnes...

I didn't know about the shims either.

I installed mine yesterday and was going to mention the same two points described in this post. Thanks GTAHAVIT!
