Dude congratz that looks amazing. I remember asking about a month ago when you were going to do this. This takes mad stones to do on your own, and I got queezy looking at the cutting. It came out very nice!

Are these ports unable to fit an SS bumber? I would love to do this myself.

Thanks man it was a fun install for sure. Taking the dremmel to the bumper was interesting.

Heres the ones they have for the ss bumper, they are T3 ports:

I was looking at a lot of your photos before I did mine man. I looked everywhere to see as many pics as possible. Thats why I took so many.

Hey great job man,
I must say you must have quite a pair on you...I litterally cringed when I saw that first pic of the dremel drilling through your bumper...
Untill I saw your pics I never would have had the balls to attempt that myself, although im quite handy with a dremel and a blade.

anyways awesome job, I love that its a DIY project.

Thanks man

Ive only used a dremel about 5 times grinding screws and such, but nothing to this extent at all. I just figured what the hell, and I made sure I had two hands on it at all times, so it wouldnt run from me. And the key is to drink beer after the dremel part, not before. Also, I wanted people to see every step of it. I searched for months, and Ive only seen like 4 pics total in each install.

Nice instructions. It looks great!

What kind of grill do you have? It looks different than the T Rex black grills?

Got it here, custom made (my car is used on their website):

Its amazing, I love it. I ran across it one day on google images, and it was just photoshopped.
