i was thinking about taking my grille, and some fogs to a local audio shop, and having them fiberglass it all custom. i wouldent think it would be too much cost wise, just got to cut the holes and make a trim ring.

The thing I would be worried about is the grill holding the lights, if the lights are too heavy and the housing heats up the grill it could make it weaker over time.

maybe, ill mount the fogs to the core support, and just make it where the grill has the opening that fit over the lights. that way the lights are fully secure and just poke through the grille.

Why don't you just mount them behind the grill like I have and not cut the grill?

Yea I might see how much a shop would charge and then go from there. I really don't know how i would cut and trim run etc. Too bad mdf wood wasent water proof. Take a mdf speaker ring and mount it in the grill, cut it out and make it work. Hmmm....

Haha, that might just work. Just something weather proof and mountable to the mesh. Then I'll mount the fogs to the truck and not the grill, yet have it line up so the lights sit flush with the grill.
