RS grille installed.. turn signal help needed

ok.. so I impulse purchased a RS grille off this guy that I met.. first ZX3 in AL with RS Bumpers and what not.. nice car.. but anyways.. I have it on and I thought that I could just use the bumper signals until I found a way to rig up some turn signals in the grille (aftermarket) but see I found out the hard way that the bumper signals wont work if the grille ones dont work.. so well Im stuck, I have no turn signals up front and watching out for night time driving so i dont get a ticket.. is there a way I can rig up signals fast? or a way i can get the bumper ones to work w/o the grille ( I live in a small town in AL, they dont check for these things much so it doesnt matter if I have grille lights for a few monthes until i can get something else or just ST lights).. thanks?

Well I saw a site with instructions on how to fix this a while back but cant seem to find it anymore so I'll tell you the basic jist of it. You take your stock grill and cut out the turn signals and then drill 2 holes on each side of the plastic surrounding the hood latch and then ziptie your turn sigs to it. Hope you can understand this and that it helps.

what if I cant cut my stock grille.. see Im 16 so technically its my moms car so my changes on it are very limited.. I cant cut it.. do you know of any other ways? and I am on a tight budget since Im 16.. If I dont find anything out very soon Im going to have to just buy some bulbs and paint them black and hope no light shines through and zip tie them or something.. so the bumper ones work and no light comes from the grille..
