Modified V-bumper teaser
Just picked up my V bumper from the body shop.
I had them remove the splitter bar in the right and left openings, to create one uniform opening.....I won't be putting the lights in them......I will be relocating the turn signals, and running no fog lights (for now), the opening will have a piece of steel mesh (matching the V grills) and secured to the bumper from the rear.
These are teaser pics.....I won't be painting the bumper, as the whole car is getting a vinyl wrap.

Interesting mod!! Id like to see where you relocate the turns though...subscribed.

Re: Modified V-bumper teaser
Wow, my stock V6 bumper has opening just like that.
I am thinking about taking the DRL's/turn-signals out, relocating them behind a billet grill, and plumbing front brake cooling ducts into the openings that actually have the hoses leading back to the rotors.
But I want V-car brakes/hubs/rims first. I have already seem threads about modifying Camaro brake duct kits to fit the Vee brakes. There are probably CTS-V brake duct kits out there by now, I just havent even looked into for a while because I am poor.
Nice mod, though, keep us posted.
