cheap ebay grill...HELP

okay.. i bought one of those grills of ebay for the lower part of my stock bumper. The grill was perfectly cut to just slide right into the bumper, the thing is therez nothing to hold it in.. there is this little metal flap that holds on to the top of the grill but theres nothing to hold the bottom part. So when you go fast it just slides in... what can i do?????

I used epoxy to secure mine, it's held up for a few months now.

Very simple, as long as it still has those half circle things to put screws into at the bottom, just put on a washer to the screw, put the screw through the top put another washer at the bottom and tighten it really really tight, this worked perfectly for me when i got rid of the engine bay plastics under the car and i had nothing to hold the grill onto the bumper,(i hope your talking about the bottom grill) LaTerZ
