    I drilled two holes with a 2 1/2 inch (I think) hole saw, then cut out the rest in the center with a cut off wheel. it is very hard to get everything strait because all of the lines on the bumper are curved.

    THANKS FOR BRINGING IT BACK

    2013-02-13_16-56-52_40.jpg Here is a picture of my back up lighting. 55w halogen lights. Works awesome, I would have bought LED except the price is out of my range for disposable lights. These are from Code 3.
