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.

Test fit the clamps first. Once u apply the epoxy u will not have anytime to figure out the clamps placement. And the clamps slip a lot. So i used a latest glove and foam to prevent that.

Hahaha nice synergy with t2 ports all day

Keep in mind it's like $20 for the epoxy dispenser that u have to order online, bc lowes, home depot, advanced auto or napa doesnt have it in sotck. $80 for clamps, and $10 for paint If you do it itself, and if you paint it yourself its not easy using a spray paint can like i did, making it look even and professional.

Sick! Planning on adding foglights? Cause it looks great the way it is without them.

Wow...what a risk and what a payoff.

Incredible job you did, I bet it killed you to cut the bumper with your dremel. Are you going to put in fog lights?
