CAN'T wait. Sick of having a scuffed bumper.

I'm hoping its a pretty straight forward swap!

I'm also deleting the headlight washers as I hate them and they get shit all over the side of the car and hood.

Easy as pie! Use some painters tape to guard the sides while you snap it into place so you can be sure not to scratch anything.

Im a step behind you! I just finished repairing mine. I should be spraying it within the next couple days! This motivates me. a lot. Good job dude.

heres the before pics


and heres another teaser after.

Its going on tomorrow at 6 so ill try to post pics up soon.

BTW Im leaving on a 5 day joy ride through needles highway... 1200 miles of fun


Should be some nice scenery... not to mention 134 turns in 4 miles of smooth road.

There are 6 cars going, including an NSX-T, m3, 350z, vette, and all of us have go-pro's and V1's with the cars.

Hopefully get a good picture or 2 as well. And expect a kickass video in a week or 2. 500gb of footage to go through will take a while.

Quick question if you dont mind me asking i picked up a nogaro S4 bumper for a steal price pretty mint with everything in tact, how much did you pay to get your front bumper sprayed? Because ive been getting some stupid estimates and ran into one guy with a B5 who got his sprayed for a ideal price, but forgot to get his number [inset banging head]

05-10-2011, 07:36 PM
i think $200 is reasonable?

05-10-2011, 07:55 PM
200 is more then ideal i got quoted 500 from one shop and i was like ummm ok yea, thank you. *walks away cursing in his mind * My biggest standstill is figuring out how to unmount my rieger kit

a quote for a bumper off the bat will be 500 dollars until they actually see the bumper and figure out how extensive the work has to be that needs to be done to it, i do body work.

i showed them them the bumper -__- it was in my trunk there liek thats a deep scratch on one side im like its not even nail deep. You need to sand the bumper down anyway....

I paid $250 to get my bumper shaved and resprayed...I wouldnt pay much more than that.
