6th gen lower grill

i bought my car with the lower bottom grill which had 2 cutouts for fog lights. i plan on removing these fog lights for a cleaner look. my question: is the lower grill a bolt in piece, or is it part of the bumper? is it is a bolt in piece where can i buy a new lower grill? i have a 2000 accord coupe with the factory body kit

thanks any help is appreciated

Thats funny.... I have a 00 too and I hated how plain my grille looked so I just bought foglights... But awhile ago I ended up cutting the black part out and putting black mesh in it cause I thought it'd look better with the "type R" upper grille that already had on it that had black mesh in it. But if you want the normal grille that much you could always just get a new bumper all together, but then you'd have to paint it... and that can get pricey. And I know around where I live its a rare ass occasion to find a 6th gen at a junkyard, i've only seen one and it was smashed in from every angle possible.

And theres also that grill you can get that pops over the black part... Here's one. But I dont know if I like them, they look like they stick out kind of far, and it might look weird on your car cause you don't have a type r grille. But heres an idea, its kind of ghetto though... but just get a some black plastic from home depot or something, and cut it to fill in the holes. I'm not sure what the holes look like to know if thats possible or would look right, but it's something to think about.

Nice Accord though, looks good. When I was first looking to buy an Accord, I wanted a red 2dr with the oem kit, haha. But anyway, I dont think the foglights look bad at all, but that all your decision.
