Grill "C" removal step by step?

Has anyone done a step by step on the complete removal? Also, any close ups after removal as far as whats left over like excess holes etc.

Its pretty easy you just remove the grill from the truck and all the push pins then you just need to start popping the clips that hold the grill to the surround. Once thats off remove the "C"s. I did mine and found the grill looks rough without the "C"s. The blank spots look unfinished to me. I just sanded and painted mine flat black.

Hmmmm....that's what I was worried about. Definitely looks good from afar.

I removed my Cs last night and grill surround for painting. It took about an hour for everything by myself. The Cs only have about 6 push pins each. Just get two flat head skinny screw drivers and its easy.

Here is what I have left after taking my Cs and Grill surround off.

Cool...I'd like to see it with the shell back on to see how much of it gets covered back up.

It covers the holes where the Cs where but to me just my opinion it looks to empty where the Cs use to be. Thats why I decided to paint my Cs and grill surround and leave the bars chrome.

I think painting them would be the best move...I took mine off tonight while installing my new color matched surround and to me it looks like crap....I broke a couple of the clips while taking the C's off so I gotta order some new ones...hopefully the sell em by themselves..
