Cutting the holes

Got tired of waiting for good weather, so started cutting the holes in the bumper. The templates that come with the T4 kits are atrocious - off by a lot. I guess that's why the instructions say to cut 1/4 inch smaller than the template outline and then do the rest of the fitting a bit at a time. Cut with a dremel, and then with a box cutter for the finer work of shaving it bigger. Used a small orbital sander to get the edges even. Will still have some final tweaking to do when the bumper is off and I can easily get at both sides. But the best thing I did to get the hole in the right spot is put the inside piece up against the back of the bumper, to see where it should fit.

Hard to make the first cut. Just kept thinking, "wow, I could be ruining a perfectly good bumper here". Just had to keep going and it turned out good, I think.
