    ah cool
    youll have to bend the pressed plate then as they are pretty stiff and there is a fair curve on the bumper

    The rear of your car will look so much better without them, especially with the wiper delete. I used "velcro" double sided adhesive foam and the plates havent moved at all

    TheY will bend enough to fit the curvature of the front grill.

    Just do it gently bently or it may crease !
