I think 3 you can get away with but I went with 4 because you get more adjustment. The only thing is that you have to drill a hole in the engine bay area and it is some thick a** metal

[QUOTE=Horseplay;1166639]NIce !! did u cover up that opening when u removed ur grille ?[COLOR="Silver"]

no, i removed it because i initally planned on repainting it, but i may be seeing about the mach 1 kit. My wife wanted that done but it seems to be growing on her being out. I'm crossing my fingers that she doenst change her mind, because i would hate to go through that hell to put it back on. it sucked to get it off in the first place.

He must be trying to get post counts up but I must say lets keep off-topic posts out of tech threads please. These are information threads.
