Default fog lights behind bullitt grill?

how should I go about installing the stock fog lights behind the bullitt grill? I was thinking of installing them next to one another in the center exposed part. What are you all using to mount them?? should I discretely zip tie the brackets to the grill themselves or is there another way?? I ordered 8k HID bulbs for the fogs.

i would think it'd be simliar to the fogs behind a billet grille. in my case i had to relocate the horn and extend the fog wiring harness. The fit is so tight that there is really no place for the fogs to go/move. I've been running my setup for several months without any issues.

where did you relocate the horn and how did you extend the wiring harness??

The problem with the bullitt grill is that it's a little thicker I think then the billet grills.
Plus thinking about it, it may not look all that great through the honey comb..

that sucks...

Well there is absolutely no room to spare with my billet grille so if the bullit grille is any deeper it wont work. I used a rectangle piece of steel and just extended the horn down behind the bumper and for the harness i got some harness extenders. the kind that you use with center fogs.

i doubt it will fit, even if you managed to make it fit there is very little openings for the lights to shine through.

hmmm... I don't know if I should put the stock GT grill back on or not just for the HID fog lights. The bullitts are being sold for $269 now.. luckily I snagged it up for only $180 lol.

well, took the bullitt grill off and put the stocker back in.. so much for 'hid' bulbs. They look like the stock fog lights! Damn Ebay cheap bastards.. oh well, they were only $26... not even going to try out the ones for the headlights lol. friggin' waste of time and money if you ask me.
