I was looking at the front of the vx yesterday and noticing the sections to the left and right of the radiator opening (lower grille). It is a spot where some cars may have fog lights but on the vx there is nothing there except a couple holes and ridges.
does anyone know if these holes serve a cooling or ventilating purpose, or are they just there and could they be covered up?
I covered mine up when I bought my '95 DX hatchback 3 months ago. No affect on cooling. My completely covered grille area, however, caused the engine to get very toasty on the first 50 degree F day we had in early April, so I had to remove the grille block that was covering the right side (where the radiator is). All cooling problems were resolved.
I covered them up yesterday. Also made a partial grille block, both blocks out of clear packing tape. I did a good job on the fog light holes, but not so good on the grille block. On the fog lights you can't tell that they are blocked unless you look closely.
