I secured them with metal wires because as TUN3D mentioned, there are no brackets that will connect to the end side of the air ducts. I drilled holes in the ducts where they are not visible and wired them to fit before placing the bumper.
Your car looks great wish there was a easy way to make it fit like this
I have no experience cutting parts like this :[

I don't have pictures but i removed the brake ducts to start because i wanted the Fog lights. noticed absolutely NO difference with or without the ducts

Sorry the pics are bad here but this is what i have now with the 1m replica bumper, i custom retro fitted some sheet metal (not hard at all) to allow a small area to the oil cooler because i was bored and people on here said it can't be done from space. once you get the bumper off and fog lights in, jack that baby up as high as you can, remove the under plastics and you will see what you have to work with or at least give yourself a good idea.
