Installation Instructions

Note: The supplied bug screen has been design to be mounted on the outside
of the vehicles grille. Drilling will be required for proper mounting.

Position the bug shield over the vehicles grille and mark the location of the mounting holes. An additional person may be required for proper alignment. Mark the hole locations as seen in (Fig.1). Remove the bug shield and drill holes where marked. It is recommended that a matching paint color or a silicon sealant be applied to the holes after drilling. This will protect the exposed metal finish from the elements. Repeat for other three mounting points

Install bug shield with supplied screws from the outside of the grille (Fig.2). Repeat for other three screws.

Note: For proper installation drilling and installation of the supplied screws is recommended, but plastic lock straps (not supplied) can be used (Fig.3)
