V6 Rear Bumper into Dual Exhaust Bumper

Does anyone know how to correctly cut a V6 bumper to add to the look of a true dual exhaust? I don't like the hang under the bumper look that much.

nope but i'll be cutting mine tomorrow so i can get my rolled tips lifted up a bit. i'll post some pics as i go...if the exhaust isn't on yet a hole saw is ideal but since mine is hanging there that's a no go lol

Nice backside. Are those taillights tinted or the raxiom ones? Anyways yes please let me know how it goes. I saw a Video on American muscle of a guy using a jigsaw to cut then out but wanted to know how he measures them. I haven't installed my dual yet.

Trying to avoid the purchase of a new bumper. This way seems doable and cheaper.
