first of all, don't laugh at me.. i guess u can... i removed something but i can't get it back in..

this weekend, i removed my grills in the front to black them out... i found this really good side that showed me how to do it.. fine... i finished everything n they turned out better than i anticipated..

but not the problem is i can get those things back on... is there a trick to snap those babies in there again..
also the grills said L and R on each.. does R go towards the passenger or the driver side?

thanx guyz...

btw, i didn't remove the alternator cooler (or whatever it's called to remove the grill since one of them was a little loose.. so i just put my hand through that one and removed the other as well)

If one is loose you may have broken one of the clips....

Yea i think they look better actually, bc they are glossy instead of flat black plastic looking.
