I was in no rush to drill holes in my van and it was a smart choice.
I decided to tie a piece of cord to my hood latch release and it works great!
I used a piece of black climbing shoelace, just the right length and it does not touch the radiator. With a few crafty knots, it is good to go!
The tabs at the bottom of my billet grill now fit into the same plastic molding, like the OEM grill setup.
I just had to move one sied of the grill, then the other.
A few gentle taps on each side, and the tabs lined up!
Once the three top bolts are tight, the grill does not move at all!
My chrome billet grill looks way better than the OEM Ford plastic grill.
Thanks for the suggestion!!
