I did mine on my car it's not to bad once the rear bumper is off there's scribed marks on the back side you can use as a guide . Some say you can use a small body saw I used a dremel to cut it. It takes longer but you can control it easier.

Yah man you have to pull the rear bumper off. It's not to bad to do. But then again I worked for ford for ten years as a tech. Now with gm and still will buy a ford all day long. But it's pretty straight forward. You getting a package from late model or buying it piece by piece

Is the line you follow really thin? Or what does it look like? Because I think I found it but I'm not sure

Ill post a pic when I get out of class. As for the clips I don't think it came with them =\ the only ones I know I saw where the white ones that go on the long tabs towards the bottom of the valance.

Ok good! How long should the install take me ? I'm planning on doing it before work today but I don't want to run out of time and leave it unfinished
I wouldn't recommend doing that, specially since you are cutting the bumper. I would do it when you don't have a deadline and can take your time. Up too you of course, but with a deadline your more prone to rush and make mistakes.

Yah man take your time don't rush it do it on a weekend. I know it sucks when you have parts ready to go on but I wouldn't rush do it right and do it once.

Dude i am one of the first to do this in Miami, Florida, USA, ****ing world, i also told MCqueen how to do it and both came out so perfect we that we didnt need the screws or clips of how perfect it came out, which ofcourse we installed for security reasons. Grab a white pencil and a dremel or small saw, thats it. Its cake, just becareful, dont toss ur small 2 red lights, and the gt500 rear valance scrapes easily, goodluck and grab a beer to enjoy the sound after, shouldnt take you longer than an hour
