need opinnions on an idea

Ok here it is. Ive been doing some bodywork for the past couple years and my confidence level is going up. Im thinking of buying this front bumper for my 03 gts and shaving the emblem hole. Any thoughts on how it will look or problems I may run into?

I wouldn't do it unless you also got rid of the body lines in the Hood. Also you don't "shave" a hole, you fill it. grin

no!!!!!!!!by doing that you are reducing the air flowing into the engine bay and thats bad for performance plus is just isnt natural for the car cry

Nope. It doesn't follow the contours of the Hood and looks odd. I wouldn't do it.

why would someone want to shave the emblem hole? bomex would look a lot better if it had it!

i don't think that it will hurt performance rofl the radiator is located in the lower part of the bumper, but still don't do it it will look bad
