Question about Street Scene Lower Grille Ducts

I was looking at ordering these and had some questions.

Once you pull the stock lower grille insert out of the fascia and install the grille ducts with the double-sided tape, then what?

Obviously you can't reinstall the stock lower grille insert. Are we supposed to trim the heck out of it, or does the billet grille overlay take its place?

And if the billet grille overlay takes the place of the stock lower grille insert, then why is it called an overlay?

I like the look of the ducts, I'm just not sure what happens after they're installed. I managed to pull up the installation instructions, but after the step for installing the ducts, it simply says you're now ready to install the fascia back onto the vehicle in reverse order.

I'm confused...

hey whats up i actually have these gonna install tomorrow. if you but just the ducts you have to cut the stock grille to fit. if you buy the version like i did with a lower black billet insert . it comes shaped to fit between and screws to the tabs that held the factory lower. ill go outside and snap pics of my directions

Okay, so that black billet grille actually replaces the stock grille insert?

When the website I was looking at said overlay, and went into great detail about how overlay means it sits on top of the stock grille, I got really confused.

Not to bring this post back from the dead but where did you guys get the lower grille? I've seen quite a few places have it and the price has been all over the place. Seen $250 - $350 for the whole kit.

Thanks,

BS

Hey BS, I ordered mine (lower replacement cut out style for V6, without the ducts on the side) from afterthoughtsauto.com for $165 shipped. However, I ordered this on July 13th and they still have not shipped it as of yesterday. I am periodically checking my email for a status update. I will let you know when this changes.

Has anyone else ordered from the same site, and if so, did you have to wait this long? If my status hasn't changed by the time I get home from work tomorrow I am calling this place to see what's taking so long.

I did have to wait a long time for my door sills I ordered from chevymall.com, but they were on back order when I ordered. I am wondering if the same situation is occurring here, or if I have been ripped off. Anyone who ordered from afterthoughtsauto.com please comment about your experience!

My piece just shipped yesterday, and I should have it by the 12th. After calling about it I found out that Street Scene was running behind in production, so don't be afraid about ordering from afterthoughts.

Yes you trim the stock grill and use two sided tape to install. It is a fast & inexpensive mod, anyone can do themselves.

I'd really like to see it before I pull the trigger - I'm so afraid to cut out anything on the Camaro (big chicken here!)
