Well its that time to get new bumper...

I wrecked my car into my daddy's new GTP....(James, its ok...Just a small scratch). Someone drove my car and didnt tell me so they left it in gear. That night i remote started it to warm up as i was gettin ready to go out and i hear BLAM. Went out and it sucked. My entire driver's side of bumper was totally fucked. Not to mention my previous wreck 2 years ago left me w/ out the fender piece to the stock body kit. So now its time to get something else.

I've been looking at onelatin8ball's car and i really like it. So i've decided to get the same kit(anyone else wanna jump on the bandwagon???)
My question is, how much modding will have to be done to get everything to fit. After swapping my engine, i dont feel like doing any hard work right now esp in the winter, so what has to be done exactly.
1) is it just making braces for the front and rear piece?
2)onelatin, i like the shaved seams in the back, what was it truely necessary...? If i got some fiberglass tape and resin, coud i just put that over seams and sand it smooth?

like i said, i'm really lazy right now and i dont want to cut the kit in half and all that crap, so if anyone can telll me what exactly has to be done, that would be great.

Thanks,
Marshall(yes i am back)

:p

As far as I know, you'd just have to custom fab brackets to make a civic bumper fit, but if you went for an Accord bumper, you'd have to cut it in half, etc etc. If you really want a Civic Bumper, I'll sell you one along with the rest of my Si and go get a loan for this Championship white 1998 Integra Type R I have my eyes on. :D

Why not just go for a kit like from Andy's auto or something? I guess when you make up your mind you make up your mind.

dont have a dig but i can describe what it did...

it pushed the license plate holder into the bumper...just to the left of it a rectangle about 4 inches tall and about 8 inches wide broke inward and fell off.... the side bumper mount broke off...THe fog light and the bumper bar its attached to is broken into 2 pieces and pushed inward...From the license plate bracket over, its hanging about 2 1/2 inches toward the ground and is only held on by a part of the bumper about 3 inches tall.

My dad's GTP had a few small scratches that arent noticeable unless you are bent down looking at the bumper from about 6 inches away. There are no dents on it and its gold colored so the scratches arent noticeable.

and that custom fab mounts is for both front and rear bumper? And the reason why....have you seen the way 8ball's car looks....I like it alot. If i could, i'd get the custom laser body kit from jetspeed over in aussie...but i cant...

the front and the side were not that hard but the rear bumpper was a pain in the rear to do it gets it on with out cuting it they hade to weld that metal stip and screw it down and fiber glass at the end it can out nice but it was a lot of work! Thats why you don't see that many rear bumpers on escort cause not evryone can do it them selves i had it do but if you have the time go for it. :D
