I'll bet it feels good now that you're done, though, eh?

Probably a dumb question but does the bumper need to come off to switch the 2 pieces? No way I’d tackle that on my own. Thanks.

Yes, Typically grilles are mainly plastic held by plastic clips on the backend of the bumper. Getting the bumper off is mission on its own. If your not comfortable its best to take to a body shop or customization shop to get it taken care of.

Great job with that modification! Looks much better with less chrome.

Is it straight swap from an RS or painted black?
I ordered the grill and trim from the dealer, yes it should be a straight swap. But the tabs you have to get loose to swap out is a MF'er you have to take your time. i got some cut fingers but it was worth it to me.
