i remember there was a thread about this earlier.. some guy used the two bolts under the front lip that are pre-existing. Said it held up well and looked alright, cept i didnt like how close together they were. try looking at some older threads..

Depends how much you trust yourself cutting into your bumper. Theres alot of ways you could do it.

By the way progress, give up on people using the Search utility, it won't happen lol.

what did you mount the fog light bracket to?

gre23a added 5 Minutes and 37 Seconds later...

i actually bought the oem fog lights and the bumper grilles with the fog light hole, then went to install them and discovered that spot that is supposed to hold the oe fog bracket is cut out, so there is just a hole there behind the bumper grille, it is like the mold was there for the fog light but it was cut out at one point during the building process.

I just screwed it into the bumper itself with some self tapping screws kind of a ***** i had to fab the brackets a little bit and cut some of the bumper away inside there

And I can get HID's for 115 a set all day long

It is the full grilles not plastic chrome strips..I bought them off ebay and i actually don't know what my buddy polished it with i'll try to find out i knw he has some machine or something cuz he's a gunsmith. The seller on these grilles says theyre aluminum but the gunsmith said they are pot metal he had a hard time getting them to shine i know that but they turned out pretty good...i like it a lot because so far i havnt seen another cobalt lt with the bottom grilles and if anyone does have them im willing to bet they aren't polished. I may do a how-to on it this weekend or something if i have time...im so mad i did a how-to last night on taking out the window switch bezels and painting them and i spent a good hour or so making it over on css.net and they havn't approved it..fukers

Oh i forgot somebody....as far as the zipties go i just found the smallest black zipties they make and then put 2 together so i had enough length and you can't even see them even if you're looking close at it
