Remove hood scoop grill/front grill??

Sesrched and didnt find any, how do i remove the hood scoop grill?
Im not talking about the entire scoop but just the black grill insert.

Looked at it and dont understand squat.

Same with the front grill, how to remove?
Seems to me i have to brake the plastic pop things and buy new ones..?

The grill is held by mini rivets and they are metal. Use a small punch and they pop right off and you can re use them.

He is but he always asked about the front grill at the end of his thread

Yup. Just take your time and bend them out carefully. Been a while since I did mine but I believe the "teeth" or "diamonds" in the mesh around the edges contained a few of those rivets. I removed the OEM "teeth" as they were an eye sore in my opinion. I like my stuff clean. Less is more. However, in removing the teeth, I removed the rivet locations in some spots (top 3) so I used 4 larger pins to hold mine in place as well as left a 1/4 of the top 3 rivet spots to act as mini braces, they can't be seen from the front. I left the bottom two half sized teeth bits in as without them, it would be too weak and probably blow out at high speed. Very solid. I wish I had taken a "before" photo but it's much cleaner now and more air in/out of the bay. Every little bit helps!

I want to pull my scoop bezel out and paint it flat black. I also need to figure a way out to secure it better and tighter to the hood. 2/4 pins are broken undernearth.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but I just lost this piece off of my hood today and I desperately need a replacement for it. Where can I find one and how much do they usually go for? I dont want to head to the Dodge dealership, as Im afraid of how much this thing will cost me.
