Remove both headlights, remove the stock grill, place the no limit grill in place physically and note where the 2 holes need to line up where the stock grill was, drill the 2 holes so you can screw it in later.
Sand down the whole grill, use glazing putty where needed to fill in nicks and scratches ( mine was a mess when I got it ) and reputty and sand it till it's smooth. Use high build ( scratch filler ) primer, go to a body shop or ford dealer and have it painted to match your body. The final painting shouldn't cost more than $50. It's a small piece.
Once painted, screw it in place where the stock grill was and replace your headlights.
Ok I got a better question: how do you install the mesh grill for the no limit grill correctly? I used 5 zip ties which I 3M taped to the inside of the grill and tied them to the mesh, but it still falls to a slant and I have to adjust it every now and then.
It was super simple. I cut out a piece of mesh to fit the rough shape with some extra on the bottom, I cut a few of the barbs to slide the 2 metal arms from the grill through the mesh and screwed it into the 2 metal arms and wrapped the extra around the bottom on the inside for rigidity. Voila!
