got the grille off the other day...love the way it looks but doesnt rly fit right around the headlights...so i have 3 options and i want input....

1) keep the grille and work around the fitting issue

2) go to an OE year-correct grille (( ))

3) custom grille...possibly hide lights behind grille?

before & after below...

since theres just a little of the wiring burnt up..im thinking about just buying the connections and just cut wiring to fit instead of dishing out 250$ for the complete harness
