Yet another heritage grille...and new location for stock grille
 
Took about 3 hours by the time I set the front on jackstands, removed the front wheels, wheel well liners and dropped the front facia, installed the new grille, and re-assembled. Well worth the time and the $400 for the grille and paint. Went the route of fabricating a landing pad for the SS emblem to attach to the grille and is actually a fender badge for an '06 Impala. Also found a new location for the stock grille.

Looks really nice.:thumbup: Did you get the SS emblem at the dealer and how much? Does the emblem have studs that come out the back?

The grill was $227 plus $16 handling fee from gmpartsdirect.com, Paint was $150 from dealer, only choice close to me. The emblem was available from dealer for about $20, but I bought a 2 pack off ebay for $22. The emblem is backed with 3M tape. I fabbed a pad out of aluminum, painted it black and secured to grille with 3m tape and speed nuts. The aluminum was piece of 3/4" tee. I cut it to length to fit the emblem then notched the tee part in the center and both ends to make 2 tabs. Then I bent it in the center to match the grille angle, painted and attached it as stated in my first post. I heated the emblem with a heat gun and bent it to match then stuck it to the pad.
