So... I don't really feel like getting a full kit but I'm really interested in changing my front bumper. Who has a large selection of fiberglass kits that I can look at and does anyone know if they sell just the bumpers?

Are these easy to install? or should I get a professional to install it. Also do they come prepainted or is that another thing that needs to be done?

I don't have any links for kits, but I'm pretty sure they don't come painted and they are going to need a little help fitting, unless you can do bodywork or know someone who can, I suggest letting a shop do it.

yes you can buy the front only.....can you install it? Depends on the quality of the kit really. It will need to be painted.

If you decide to do it, test fit the bumper before getting it painted. You can then do any fiberglass work to fill in any gaps with the body. Then when the fit is right prep it for paint and bring it to a shop for paint.

Do a search on here or through the sponsor site. Another way to see them is look at photos of the ones on Ebay. Not suggesting buying from EBAY but lots of photos on their of kits.

Also, if the kit is for an early bB, you may have to remove the front bumper support in order for the new bumper cover to fit.

www.HouseofScion.com sells the JP Vizage front by itself. I just ordered the full kit. Great Price & Great Customer Service.

He said the kit needs no extra fiberglass work to fit. We will see ( Said with fingers crossed )

I should have it next week sometime.

i dont know yet whether im going to sell it, or make a JDM copy of another kit. it had a crack in it i replaced, but its good now. ive gotten pretty good so i have some ideas for making a new one totally we've never had over here. right now im thinking maybe Cal Racer is the one im leaning towards. ill probably keep it for a while longer.
