lights behind grille?

Has anyone ever tried putting like 3 or 4 inch lights behind your grille delete? Or have ever heard of someone doing it? I think I'm going to buy some cheep lights and try it, if it looks good I will get nice lights. Any ideas or thoughts here people?

i've seen it...and two things i thought of..

1. it looked really bad

2. it takes away from air flow to the radiator

I would think the fogs would send heat(hot air) to the radiator as well. ?

i don't think the amount of time air passes the fogs would cause any heat soak issues...

Yeah I keep trying to visualiz it but can't... I don't have an imagination... I don't want them to be super noticeable during the day. And I thought about the radiator problem but I don't think 2 lights would cause too much airflow loss, but I guess that is the only real part of the radiator exposed to air.... I'm not going to lie when I say I used to have a jeep and I love lights, I felt as if I should put lights everywhere but only if it looks good... I also have never seen a new edge with lights there, and that In its self makes me want to see how ugly it would look because I certainly cannot find a picture of it....
