Did you have to modify your J‘s grill like fatherpain did, or have they improved the fitment? It looks really nice!

Absolutely not.

I bought a FRP replica J's grill made by EPR International off of eBay late last year. Ended up selling it to a friend with an FK7.

That replica fits like absolute shit. It's 1-2 cm narrower than the real thing so it can't properly clip into the bumper. The J's has fitment issues but they're nowhere near as bad as the replicas.

Holy crap, that’s way beyond bad fitment 😱

Finally got the J's grill and bumper on the car :)
I think I got lucky with the top edge fitment as I did not have to mess with it at all.
Very impressed with the size of the intake/gap to move air through, even with the Honda front badge logo holder in place.
I will post up better pictures in the next few days as I just got it done late today.
Good looking combo with the J's/Morimoto headlights.

Thank you for the detailed install instructions. Mine didn't come with them and I couldn't have done it without your help.

My fitment wasn't perfect, but that top line was aligned well. Worst fitment was around the inner corners of the headlights.

Had it painted by the shop that does Honda's work in town.

IMO, well worth the hassle. I love the look. I left the Honda symbol out for now.

Alim, looks great on your black CTR. Also looks really good with the J's/Mirimoto headlights :thumbsup: I'm sure your engine bay will like the extra air, especially this summer (its been a warm one around here).

Glad I was label to help.

One of the local fellow here also gone cheap route and bought EPR shit...
It fits exactly like yours and the gap is unreal...
I got to see it personal few days ago and I dont know how to comment on it. Knock off j's belongs to the junk yard only.

I got mine last week, painted it and installed last night and the fit is perfect without any modifications, I bought a new Honda emblem and installed into the holder and while I was installing the holder into the grill it fell and broke the badge LOL, love the look, Im doing the HKS intercooler install as well as PRL downpipe and frontpipe

You bought the authentic J's grill and it came with perfect fitment (flush everything)? Pics! Also, what was the total cost including paint & install? (grill + paint + install)

Yes authentic and it was perfect fitment, the cost for the grill plus badge holder was I think $825 plus $150 for painting the grill (Color code Berlina Black NH547) I installed the grill myself its an easy install following the instructions provided on this thread as the instructions that come with the grill are really bad. I placed the order with @MsJsRacing via Instagram/paypal she is J's racing representative in the US you can send her an email to [email protected]
