3rd Radiator Installation

I just picked up a 3rd radiator kit for my 02 Boxster base with on 03-04 front bumper cover.

So, for all practical purposes, let's say I am installing the center radiator on an 03 Boxster base. The kit includes the black air scoop the gets attached to the radiator. But to do this the factory way, I'll still need the trim and retainer (grill) pieces that are attached to the hole that gets cut in the bumper cover. I priced those items to be around $400+ tax and shipping.

Being a street car that gets tracked 8 to 10 times a year, are there any suggestions as how to do this with less cost?

And please don't say "duct tape".

I have not yet done this to my car but Pedro's solution is workable and it looks pretty good once completed. Liquid nails might be an even better adhesive to use. I may add the gutter guard solution to my radiator inlets to keep tire marble accumulation to a minimum.
