Default Rear valence mod for muffler tips

I really want to get some new tips for my 94 but I don't want them to "hang" below the rear bumper. I like the tucked look you get with the molded rear valences. Does anyone know if someone has dremelled or cut out part of their stock rear bumper to fit new tips? And is there a way to push up bigger tips so that they can tuck or would I be stuck with the stock sized tips? Are there any rear valences that look decent without getting the rest of the kit.

Thanks

I guess this is what your looking for. Look at Lexkost's pic here, this is for a 96 but might help you out.
He cut his bumper slightly to put over size tips on.

Hope that helped and gave you some idea of what you could do.

I've seen this picture before and I must say that Lexkost has the classiest, most tasteful aftermarket exhaust I've seen on a LS.

are their any rear valences i could buy that look classy without overdoing it. I was considering a body kit but I think most of them take away from the subtle elegance of the car instead of enhancing it (I guess that's a lot to ask though)
Thanks
