    as soon as i can get the lights ... the bumpers ready to work on so...

    the only problem i can see initially is the DRLs are angled wrong.. but if i flip them around and use on the opposite sides ....

    Great idea, the more OEM they look the better ... Some DRL's i've seen look a bit tacky.

    true.. iv tried the eBay simple LED strips and they Arn't legal and they look like they are stuck on ( cos they R )

    the idea here is im goin to mould the bumper around the DRLs perfectly to look like its designed for it

    I'm affraid that this wouldn't be cheap. What is more similar shape doesn't mean this would fit. I'd make 100% sure what the dimensions are at first, they look much bigger than Vectra fog grilles.
