Looks great man! But damn did I get the shivers from just looking at the pics of you cutting her up and she's not even my baby, lol. Was lining the templates up the same on each side easy? That's my biggest worry here that they'd be off-centered or one would tip down or something. I also wonder if these will work in conjunction with the air scoop from ADM. This is a mod I certainly plan on doing on my car in the near future, I want matte black though.

Ohh btw, thanks for the pics, I and I know many others have been really wanting to see pics of this being done so an extra for the very detailed install. If this isn't already in the DIY section it should be .

Lupe,

love the look and am seriously considering it myself after seeing yours!

Question......with all this new air being funneled into the area behind the bumper.....have you noticed any air noise....roaring etc?????

also......how does the rear piece attach to the front piece???

Looks great and nice work. I am waiting for Gary's DRL mount mod before I do this.

the instructions are good enough for me, they have a paper template, not super great, but its a general guide. between the template (paper) and looking at pics online, i got it, once i did the first one, i measured the hole and marked the measurement on the other side. worked out perfect.

Wow!!

That looks soooo good sir!

Glad you left the "slats" of the grill black. I left mine flat and painted the surround gloss and it truly looks like a custom insert.

Nice work man! Dig it!
