anyone ever cut holes in their grill for fog lights? I was at lowes today and saw a drill bit that could cut a 6" hole... anyone see a problem with trying this?

I imagine using a hole saw on your grill would be like taking an axe to it. the plastic would rip, shred, and splinter apart.

YEA... I agree. Probably not the best idea. There's already holes in the bumper for fog lights.

I think you could do it if you were gentle. I'd run the drill backwards though. I've cut plastic sheets with a circular saw blade in backwards and it works fine.

Just putting lights behind the grill of a '60 would work great. If you want to light upo the back of the grill a least. If you want effective light on the road then that would be pointless.

I'd use an air saw and mark the hole I wanted to cut and then do it free hand. I cut plastic this way routinely.

I doubt that you could keep the drill steady enough to get a clean and straight hole with no grabbing (and therefore damage to the plastic).
