This is a doable mod if you are interested in removing the sport rails and replacing them with regular roof trim. There is a considerable difference in the sport trim vs non sport roof design. If you have a sport model and are wanting to switch the rails you will have to drill 3 additional holes on either side towards the back of the car for the retaining clips and the two holes on either side that were already there will have to be plugged up. How they are plugged is entirely up to you. I will not recommend one method over another.

Here are the pics for the bumper vent install

Clear coat and ready to

Here is the template I made. I test fit the vents and the fit was very snug.

Nice big gaping hole in a perfectly good bumper

Anyway we can get a repost of pics? Seems to be blank on my end. Am I thr only one? I am super intrigued by this. Awesome job man.
