I am installing the grill and associated trim. It appears that grill is held in place by the same bolts that hold the upper grill lip in place. If you have a MOSS catalog its on page 128 item #40 and #45. The issue I have is that the grill has mounting hardware points across the bottom and I don't see any reference to this in the catalog or in any of my other research. And of course there is nothing on the car, and I don't see anything in the parts I have.

Where do the lower grill mounts attach to?

Thanks

There are sheet metal brackets attached to the lower lip of the opening with rivets. The chrome trim at the bottom covers the rivets. I bought mine from Kilmartin. Moss did not carry them

Kilmartin's part # is AH369A for the parts you're looking for.

In the extreme top-left corner, you can barely make out the "L" shape of the leftmost bracket. They are a steel offset shape (think: half of a swastika) with a captive nut, and riveted (real countersunk rivets, not of the "pop" variety) to the lower flanged opening for the grill.

Should be easy enough to add, though placement will be critical, as well as the riveting process (pneumatic tool and hand buck).

Sorry, I couldn't find a better picture...
