GT fog lights in the center...who's done it?

Just wondered if anybody here has performed this modification. I've seen the "kit" on eBay but wonder exactly how difficult it would be to do on your own.
My wife bought the black billet grille kit for me for Christmas and I really like the look of the center mounted fog lights but dont really want to pay for something else that may prove to be a simple modification. As I wont have the grille kit until after Christmas, I have no idea what the bracketry behind the factory grille consists of. I'm not afraid to "fab up" something relatively simple but I'd like some advice before I get into the install.

Thanks!

I really want to do mine. To be honest, for $35 shipped it's not worth chasing the hardware and buying the metal from the hardware store. I'm going to get the ebay kit.

I'm just trying to do this on my own and wondered if anybody else has done it without the kit from eBay.

The 13'-14' model years the grille fits over the fog lights without modification. 10'-12' the lights need removed or modified for the grille to fit.

I was going to move them to the center while I installed the new grille because I like the look.
