    Default Cutting hole in front bumper

    Hi,

    there seems to be a few cars here with the two holes in the front bumper behind where the front number plate goes.

    I am thinking about doing this and mounting the numberplate just below.

    Does anyone know if this is hard to do, is it one layer of plastic?

    I would just drill a hole and use a jigsaw and tidy with a file etc I think

    Thinking the same jack , it gets hot under the bonnet quite quick.

    I was going to do this when I was messing about with the waterspray for the intercooler. Not 100% sure but the bumper comes in 2 pieces, I think you only have to cut through the outer piece to open up the holes, however the reason I didn't do this was because there is a crossmember that goes across right behind where the holes go.

    I don't think it's difficult to do, butt useing a jigsaw...use it at very low speed! otherwise the plastic will get to hot and the platic will melt...

    I think the bumper at the point of the holes is thin an easy to do....
    If someone has the exact measurement of those holes, i'd like the hear them

    Greetings,
