You need to remove the front bumper. Takes about an hour. It helps to remove the front tires when doing it.

Take it from me, SS or not, to remove the grilles, you need to remove the whole front clip.
Not bad overall:

I had to run the screws in under the wheel wells a little at a time on each side to keep it aligned perfectly but it wasn't as bad as it sounds.

Well, if the inserts are like the SS SEMA grille, they basically can only be removed from behind so again the grille needs to be removed.

I thought you meant the entire grill insert, didn't realize you were talking about the chrome. Being that I have a SS I don't know sorry. Give it a shot with a pry tool

Has anyone by chance tried to remove the chrome SS inserts under the lower DRL's? I've been wanting to darken them. (IF anyone could point me to a mechanical assembly drawing for the bumper that would be greatly appreciated too)

I wrapped every piece that you are looking at , with the grill on the car, it's not hard at all and it looks extremely professional after a year.
