My brother has an 04 NBP Type S and we were taking out the grill with the acura symbol on it today, and noticed when we got it off, there is a piece of metal right under where it was. I have no clue what it is, looks like a brace of somesort but it is just a straight piece of metal, curled down on both ends, and bolted to the front bumper. There is a hard piece of material under it but it seems to serve no purpose. I felt on the bottom and it is just bolted straight through the top of the bumper, not attached to anything else. I was thinking it might be a support for the grill and front end so that it doesnt flex too much. So i was wondering what it might be just in case we decide to take it off. Anyone with a helms manual care to help me figure out what this is? By the way, it looks much better since we took out the grill.
