2003+ side grille retention?

Looking to remove the slats from my 2001 side grilles but the grille section is also the inner retaining piece. Can anyone show me detailed photos of the the newer one piece grille retaining bits so that I may try to replicate them. Or if you’ve modified the inner piece to lose the slats on the pre 2003 piece and added grill material, how is removal of the part after being installed on the car?

Passenger side sorry, wrong photo.
Moved from MY01 to MY04...what a PITA to remove the driver side grill...even worse with MY04.
I noticed that the lower lip seems to be the PITA, could barely get the grill over it. I really considered to file the metal latch on the car 1mm down.
I might have a photo somewhere.
