Note install photos show a rough prototype in raw aluminum. Production version is powdercoated and slightly different in shape.

Install is simple, figure 30 minutes including a lunch break ;)
Comes with just 2x bolts/washers/lockwashers, and two brackets.

Install the pair of supplied brackets under the two factory bolts (red arrows):

Install instructions for NA Radiator Panel Cover part # 61-2587

Comes with 3x bolts/washers/lockwashers.

Note install photo shows a rough prototype in raw aluminum. Production version is powdercoated and slightly different in shape.

For NA version, the front airbag sensor wiring loom runs over the cross bar, so that loom needs to be relocated to run under the cross bar so that the radiator cover panel can sit flat. To relocate the loom, disconnect wiring harness by Left side shock tower and unbolt the airbag sensor by the hood latch. Remove, then reinstall with wiring running under the cross bar instead of above it. Do not install the rear bolt that holds the sensor to the cross bar, again so that the new panel can sit flat.

With the wiring moved, install the radiator panel cover with the three supplied bolts/washers/lock washers. (Yellow arrows):
