How many of you have knocked out the stock front (intercooler) grill and either left it open or put in an aftermarket grill? Post pics!

I think if its done right, it can look nice, but I personally plan on replacing my bumper with the gracer/greddy. Not bad for a temporary thing though I guess.

I took mine off but thought having the exposes mounting holes showing looking worse then just leaving the grill there so I put it back.

Just a question not to jack. But i took my bumper off last night to check for mounting my new IC.
If I take the bumper support off, can i still mount the fog lights?

BTW, I dont wanna hear I shouldnt take the support off. Thats not what Im asking for reference.

here's mine.. i mainly put mesh in there for protection of my ic.. i'd rather hide it than have a rock get it lol

oh and excuse my terrible photoshop skills on the lenses, i wanted a sneak preview of what they would look like when i got them on there lol, i couldn't wait a week for them to arrive

its a custom intercooler i had someone make. I used a jigsaw, yes it leaves V's behind, so you either leave it or get them filled in, keithh made a post about how to do it a long time ago.

BTW nice cars guys.

actually i used a die grinder and cut the V's out as well then sanded smooth. you could see the yellow of the inside of the bumper so i painted all that flat black on the inside.
not the best pic but only one i could find off hand.
