    Hi Don,

    Thank you for specifying that your El Grande horns had only one spade/lug. That seems to be the case for most people with the El Grande who mention it. I'm curious please, are the bodies of your El Grande horns (behind the red cover) a silver/chrome, or dark like the ones I showed in my picture?

    As an aside, I've been to the PNW a number of times and really enjoyed it; have been to areas such as Mt Rainier, Leavenworth, Deception Pass, Whidbey & Camano Islands, and a little bit around the Seattle area itself. :)

    Mike

    I did this DIY this weekend using FIAMM Freeway Blasters 72102 and 72112.

    I chose to pull out all the clips and bolts on the top of the bumper and rad covers, and then just pulled the top of the bumper cover toward me when required. Even with my gorilla arms and hands I was able to get the access I needed.

    I suggest the emblem removal method for non-gorillas. That's an elegant solution to the access problem.
