Mounting Coroplast for a Grill Block

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?

No mutilation, eh? Dan used screws on the Del Camino. Looks like basjoos siliconed his on

I ended up making a kind of bra for mine to avoid that same vexing issue.

I've never seen pictures of your bra, but I'm prollygoing to hot glue or something. I imagine it'll peel off...

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've figured out how I'll do it. Was about halfway through when I punctured my knee with the knife and went to the doctor's. I'll finish up tonight when I can walk around and stuff,

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.

I still have to do the aero mods on my civic.

It will take hours to make a belly pan and the grill block.
