I know it can be done but I've never done it. But how did you get the black plastic off of your stock front bumper to put the mesh in? Did you have to cut it off, because I'm thinking I might have to do htat. thanks

Hey i actually did cut out the black plastic from the lower part of the bumper it was not hard all i used was a utility knife, liquid nails, wire cutters, and some strong but bendable wire, i also replaced my top mesh myself with mesh i got at home depot, i will look for the instructions that i used and ill see if i can send them to you

well my fogs have been mounted on my grill for like a year now and they only worked for a couple of months, haha.
after a couple of months one of them went out so i just unplugged both of them cause i'm too lazy to figure out what's wrong hahaha

they still look cool during the day though, haha, i should probably just pay the $15 to get them installed professionally. haha

I left it on there and put the mesh under it, i didnt cut out the black plastic on the upper grill, check out my web site and you will see. The pict in my sig is old but still has the mesh on it but its hard to see from that angle. i actually need to take some more picts on a bright sunny day where there is no shade.

Appreciate you posting the photos and NO disrespect, but one of the reasons I am paying $50 is that I do NOT like the chrome outline on my LX. Not bad looking though even though you can still see the other stuff though the mesh. I also want to loose the emblem :eek:

Later!

That pic in your sig: Is the molding around your windows chrome or black :confused: It looks black in the pic, but hard to tell.....

I really dont link the chrome either i plane to get a black widow kit so i dont want to spend the money on a new grill that i would not use after i got my kit. I do like the other grill though. The trim around my window is chrome.
