Default * HELP Hella Supertones Rubbing on my STi Grille

I recently installed my hella supertone horns a while ago where my hood latch is but now my STi grille won't go in all the way because it slightly rubs on the horns. Anybody got any better ideas to mount the horns so that they don't hit the grill? if possible, please post up pics. thanks.

move the horn brackets to the back side of the radiator beam if you have them mounted on the front... it'll get you a few 32nd's of an inch... you could possibly shave down the back side of the grille if you need to.

^ yup do that and you can add washers to move them back. But if they are behind the beam there should not be any problems, just push.

you need to use some washers with a lock washer, that would work

I've searched but the majority of the pictures are not that detailed on how they were mounted.
