Exclamation Need help ASAP! Redoing front bumper

ok all, trying to decide if i should upgrade my front bumper, and need some info from your experiences. like the look of this bumper ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=2424040011 ) on ebay, but can i get this bumper elsewhere or another bumper for a good price? would like to eventually change my side skirts to cf ones if i can find some for my 01, and add on some rear bumper spats, change to projector headlights, change the taillights/ie make the car a little more aggressive, keeping in mind i don't want to lower the car as i like the height it's at rt now. need to decide asap if i should just have the body shop repaint my orig bumper or upgrade to a new bumper. see my other post ( http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...hreadid=390860 ) for more details. need suggestions or experiences as to fitment, etc., ASAP. thnx.

i got hte bumper form gtp
www.importfan.com

it fit like crap. There was a moulding problem on the passender side mounting point that had to be cut off. i had to pay 200 bux for shipping. Im entirely not satisfied with gtp. although the quality of the fiberglass itself is good. buy the real thing, forget the replica.

hey arthur,
what color is your car, and are you going to be selling the front bumper only or did you have a complete kit? any pics and how many miles have you had it on? i'm in camarillo (about 1/2hr away from you). i'm stuck waiting for at least 2 weeks cause of insurance deal and i need to get more $ in before i can get the bumper and pay the deductible, unless the guy's insurance accepts he was at fault so i won't have to pay the deductible. one of the reasons i don't want to stay w/ my stock bumper is because i want to upgrade, and trying to shorten the amount of time i would be w/o my car. trying to get this sorted out asap as everything else is up in the air until i get my money situation settled. thnx.

I'll probably be selling the Front and Rear bumper together with the C-west Side skirts. I installed the kit in April of this year. The kit has less than 2k miles on it. It is painted Siverthorne metallic.

Here is a photo of it ...



Let me know if you want to check it out, the car is usually in Valencia.

Send me an email!
