Now, I'm going to pull my bumper today so I can respray the black portion of it to make it look spiffy, and I picking I'll grill it up as well. What do people usually use to mount the block on there? Is there anything that perhaps will not require mutilating my bumper?
I just made it recently. It's not totally finished. When it is, I'll post some.
It's just a rectangle of black vinyl-ish material with a couple of square holes to let the air through where I want it. Works for me since my car's black. Keeps the bugs & stones off the paint too, I guess.
I made a piece of angled sheet metal and attached that to the bumper skin from the underside. I then screwed the coroplast to the angle pieces. For the bottom I used mastic tape. Mastic tape is a roofing product its sticky and stays malible, kind of like silly putty but stickier. Its also sold under the brand "tacky tape".
By doing it this way when I remove the block no screw holes will be visible.

I attached my plastic grill block on with zip ties, and black pollyurithane roofing calk, the little bits are 100% held on with roofing calk, and the larger one is zip ties with roofing calk to make it look seamless, I caught a co-worker looking at it one day, baffled at how good it looked.
