Any help would be excepted.

Posted on your other (identical) thread. The grille picture was stolen from a photo posted by a forum member... Not unusual for eBay listing unfortunately...

Got a picture?

How hard was it to modify?

Hows your engine temp? I've heard CLK type grilles run hot in warm ambient temps.

Engine temp is fine and no noticeable change.
