    I used a gutter guard from home depot and the emblem holds in place by the tabs that hang them on the original grille with just a little dab of glue...

    Gutter Guard???

    Your secret is safe with us. Genius. I love it.

    I found some Volvo grilles on alibaba.com today. Cheap...maybe not gutter-guard cheap, but still:

    I'm applying my hard-earned (more like bought) knowledge to a 2004 XC90 2.5T.

    Guess I could have squinted harder at that pic, huh?

    I probably saw "V70" and "XC" close to each other. Oh well...they probably buy gutter guards and make 'em - then sell them with markup!

    haha, I wouldn't doubt it. This isn't too bad of an expense money wise if you already have a dremel, hot glue gun, ect ect.

    However, it is very time consuming and takes a lot of work. Basing it off of my OEM grill, it seems like it would be much easier to do with a 2005+ grill to start with just because they way they are put together. MUCH less cutting!

    Nice work. I would've blacked it out completely myself. I have no fondness for the Volvo grill and cross-emblem.
