Next day delivery, as has been all my orders so far from MX5parts.
This is a high quality grill, beautifully finished. It took me about an hour and a half to fit on my own following the fairly comprehensive instructions that come with it. Removal of the existing plastic plugs is a little tricky. The instructions suggest "pinching" the spring pinples with your finger and thumb; impossible! use a pair of long nosed pliers to clamp in the pimples, far easier. I also have a pair of ramps which give yopu much needed room under the car when fitting.
Unless you have assistance, fitting the lower bolts and brackets the correct way up would be very difficult. I used Gaffer tape to hold the bolts and bracket assemblies in place from above, so that I could then use both hands to attach the lock nut and washer from below.
Having already suffered a stone through my rad, I decided I needed a grill after I replaced the rad. As I said, this is a high quality product and looks great on the car. It gives it a very retro E-Type look. Highly recommended, just be prepared to spend a little bit of time fitting it.
