if you dont have the stock grill when you use the mesh.... if you hit a bird or something.. bye bye radiator and engine if you over heat.

On the back there are some peices that you need to push in at the same time as you pull. I highly suggest to continue with what your doing. Than just wrap the mesh around the black backing of the factory grill.

There are a bunch of tabs on the back you need to get through their holes...

on the back of the grill.. there are tabs that still connect the Painted Grill to the Black Grill.. they need to be pressed in before you can pull the grill off. Just like your head light bulbs.. you need to push this 'tab' before you can pull the electric connection to the bulb. I'll try to get some pics later today.

I pulled all the tabs but the grill just wont pop off, I can get the out bars loose but the center just wont pop off right where the hyundai logo is.

Uh ok. I thought it was perfectly clear in the original post that no one cares what haters think of it. The guy wanted help with doing a mod and there it is. I'll never understand why ppl have to dis other ppl's ideas. I doubt anyone's sitting here reading your post saying "wow... that Gregster guy really opened my eyes to what a shitty mod that guy did. Thank you bud for putting it so eloquently!" Stop wasting everyone's time talking trash about what you think looks bad and go do something productive to help the Accent community. I wouldn't waste keystrokes on what I thought of your mods. I just wouldn't bother posting. I suggest you take some advice on that one.

I've seen a few done like that, VAST improvement. The factory LC2 grille looks more like ghetto-rice than plain mesh- I would however have sprayed the mesh black. Good job :)

PS everyone is entitled to an oppinion be it good or bad. However, you can be CONSTRUCTIVE in your criticism and just say you don't like it.

So I dont understand why the grill wont pop off near the middle, seems like there is smaller tabs and they just dont want to release

Check very carefully. I missed a couple tabs too (and was wondering WTF for about 20 minutes) when I was taking mine off for fun a long time ago.
