Radiator grill install issue?

I attempted to install the grill guards I bought from GR customs. I have 2012 nightrod. It seems that at the bottom where the groves are they don't fit. If I force them they will scrap the radiator plastic and they really don't line up at bottom. Is this normal or an issue for 2012? Any advice would be appreciated!

I have the GR inserts and they fit perfect. It took a couple of tries and rereading the instructions but then they fell into place. Take your time and do not get frustrated or they'll never fit......

So I started over and and they lined up fine! Moral of story don't do work at 4am outside in dark when your tired!!

I will say this though the lilmery guy responded to my email, called and offered assistance fast! Wanted to say thanks to to him!

Just line the groves up with grill and let the rest fall into place! Click image for larger version

Why didn't you clean the bezel before install? Nasty!

Other than busting balls anyone else on this thread have a good product for keeping these clean and not harming anything else in the surrounding areas?
