I'm assuming that you bought one grill and took pieces from your stock grill to make the finished product. Correct?
JJ,

The grille is the one that came on the car. I removed it, separated the trim ring from the slats then prepped and painted it. $46.00 total cost.

Also, Bigdeep did the same mod. He bought the performance grille and swapped the trim rings. Same look, higher cost but way less effort.
