Default Lower Billet Grill

So I purchased a lower billet grill for my pony and it arrived yesterday. Bought it on ebay for cheap. The quality of the product was decent enough but theinstructions were practically non-existent, and hardware seems to have been cobbled together from somebody's basement.

It appears, based on the few words on the instructions, that it requires the standard V6 honeycomb style grill for installation. I have the pony package so my lower grille is much different (with openings pretty much everywhere there is a mounting point on the billet grill). Has anyone else run into this problem, and if so how did you fix it? The seller isn't responding back so it looks like returning is not an option. I may have to come up with some clever work-around if I want to use it.

Like you said, I'll be leaving negative feedback. The guy got back to me and said "you need to have a professional install it". If you're telling me I need to go to a body shop to put a lower billet grill in, you're nuts. I managed to get it onto the car tonight using an advanced technique of zip tying the hell out of it. The zip ties are hardly noticeable so it'll work for now. The nice thing is I didn't modify the car at all to mount it, so if I don't love it, or it doesn't hold well I can take it off without any evidence of itever having beenthere.
