This isnt my car but I dont have any pix of it yet. You see the grill right under the license plate? I wanna cut that piece off.
Oh... but that's not the grill. The grill's actually above it and in front of ur radiator...
But that's your bumper down there. You can't just cut it off. WHere would you keep ur fog lights? You may be able to find some sort of after market peice to replace it with... but you could just paint it to match the rest of your car?

well, okay. I don't know of anyone who has done that, but since it's probably a hard plastic, be careful or it will chip where you've cut it. I would suggest a hand saw of some sort (I believe there are some out there specifically for cutting plastics) with lots of teeth... If you end up doing it, lemme see the pics, k?
You can actually cut that piece off pretty easily. I would not use a power tool though. Use a small hacksaw and go at it. When done sand it down and smoothe it out. I'm assuming you're putting some mesh right there because I've seen others do that.
to save yourself from chiping, score the lines that you want to cut with a sharp razor first. That way when you do go at it with a hacksaw (or sledge hammer ) you dont have to worry about chipping the plastic.
