this DIY has confused me. Are you saying the chrome part can be removed from the black plastic part? I've neve done it or looked at it in detail so I'm a little confused.

There are 2 Phillips head screws for the Acura badge and 6 (?) or so for the chrome trim ring. Of course, there are 4 (10 mm) nuts that attach the grill to the hood. You might want to apply a little WD-40 to the nuts before removing the grill - the studs they attach to are prone to breaking if over-torqued.
