Just make sure not to cut too much, the ducts will hide the grill ends. You have to take the bumper cover out to gain access to the lower grill.
Mark where you are planning on cutting before you do anything else. You need to make a good alignment 'cause once they're stuck to the surface... they're not coming out!
