Great Stuff Mike ! I pick up my 997S in a few weeks. First mod is the GT3 front bumper. Will definitely do this grill insert. Perhaps a road trip to VA Beach and we can knock it out together ?

Hope all is well....

Ditto - thanks Mike.
I used your pics as a guide when I installed the GT3 seats in my 986.

Thanks for the info. I'll be doing this soon to straighten up the damage already done and to install some protection. The grill screens look good, and the price is right.

Thanks for the DIY Mike! I know this is a little late but wanted to say thank you. It was very well documented and made my bumper removal straight forward. I don't think I would have ever found this little metal clips hidden in there.

Carrera Mike, you're a life-saver. The dealer wanted $300+ to replace the center radiator grill outlet with the carbon fibre one I bought a while back. I think with your documentation I can tackle it myself AND add the grilles as well.

Thanks much!
