Default Removing the plasting on the front bumper.

Does anyone know how to remove the black plastic piece on the front bumper? It's really an eyesore to me.

EDIT: I feel like such a dumbass. Could a mod fix my typo? I meant to say plastic instead of plasting.

Cobreth:

If you're referring to the black plastic section into which the front number plate is screwed - the answer is you can't.

That black plastic section is integral with the bumper. You could paint it body color.

I hope this helps

By integral do you mean necessary, or a bitch to remove?

It CAN be removed, BUT the US bumper is right behind it. You can use a JDM bumper or cut the US bumper. You then can cut away the black part or cut away the front face of the black part the way some rally cars do.
