Question Lower grill with fog light question

I just put in the high powered fog lights from Rigid Industries and would like to ask you guys if you think I should keep that piece of plastic between the two lights or take it out and replace with black diamond mesh.

NICE! I'd say rip out the grille and Fab up something to Hide those bad boys!

You put the foglights in the wrong place. So, why not finish cutting off what you already hacked up I just don't think that there is anyway that you will be able to make that look good.

Py, I have considered cutting the rest out to give it the open look this was just a stopping point. Where would you suggest putting fogs just in case I want more?

Since you decided not to get OEM fogs and install them in the OEM spots, my suggestion would be to take your existing fogs and mount them in the OEM spots with mesh covering them. Then you can finish cutting out the lower grille area and it will look clean. Also, less is more - remember that! You don't need to add anymore fogs, just put the ones you got in the correct spots



^That's what your car could look like with a lil work(and almost no extra cost)

Wow, thanks for the mock up. That is a great look, I will see what it takes to mount the fogs in the oem spot. With that eye it's no wonder you got the ROTM!

You're welcome, thanks for the compliment! I just looked to see if anyone did a how-to for 05-07 fogs, sadly one has not been made. Here is the how-to archive for help with most other things:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=65218

It should be easy to mount the fogs in the correct spots once you remove those covers.

Right, I have done my homework on the subject in the how-to section I just wanted to try something new though this one doesn't look like a big hit. Your suggestion should be easy so long as I can figure a way to mount the custom lights. Thanks again
