OP, Are you just leaving the fog lights out? or do you plan to mount them somewhere else?

Or even directed to the designer, do you have a kit or supplimental that has a mounting idea for the fog lights?

i am working on few different things right now, since i have dual halos red/white, i am mounting white LED strips on the scoops like the manufacture is doing and then we made some custom brackets to hold red LED's at an angle, this way, the scoop will light up red but you cannot see the LED. i think it looks pretty cool. i will post pics real soon.

Can't wait to see what you come up, we currently have a prototype bracket with the original DRL light mounted on the T3 and T2 ports, it does look pretty cool and will make the kit a true bolt on.

Once validated i'll be able to post our parts.

Yes it will work with T2 ports, these will be offered initially to customers who have already purchased the ports.

hello bro, u might give garys customs a call, you could get an baseline, then when you go to your local body shop u have an idea. scoops painted run you 500-525.00 or so, then it took me about 4 hours. check your local shop rates. if i was guessing i say expect to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $750.00-900.00.
i did them myself. so i paid myself

Do they make these scoops for a V6? I'm going to be getting a IO LS next month and looking to plan some mods while I wait and these look amazing on the front of the car. Really makes it pop.

Our T2 ports are made to fit V6 bumpers.

I know some customers have installed pre-painted ports with sucess. It would be recommened to paint after install.

I'm an idiot. Ive been on your site like 20 times and never scrolled down far enough to notice there was more than 1 page. Thanks a lot! These ports def add character to the front of the car. I'm not real sure if I would do this myself though, I would probably get my dad whose real handy to help me out or possibly price an install at a shop near me. Since these will need to be painted anyway Ill prolly just go shop route. Hopefully they dont charge an arm and a leg.
