just found this post so im not sure if you figured it out yet, but no it doesnt. I just removed my bowtie from my heritage grille. If your hand is small enough, stick it through the hole beside the hood latch(my girlfriend held mine haha) to hold the backing plate in place. Line up the landing pad on the front and install the 2 bolts. pop the gold part of the bowtie into the landing pad and ur done!! hope this helps

I installed a red Sparks SS emblem when I installed my Hertiage grille. When I switched it to black, I had to take the front end off again.

You should be able to just remove the top black metal cover, where the hood latch and GM Performance Division emblem is (or should be depending on build date).
That will allow you to reach down to the back of the heritage grille.

Would this work on a stock grill, I have a billet grill that goes on as a cover to the stock grill. Or should I just remove the front end to install the upper and lower billet grill..

Really depends on where the attachments are for the billet grill, it may just be easier to remove the whole fascia, but I'm not sure, I haven't installed or looked at the billet grills.

This worked just fine, I could just get my hand in there to hold the mounting bracket
