hey whats up guys I finally got the money and time to put my new bumper on that I got from the junk yard so I thought I would post for some input. I got the bumper for 30$ from a local junk yard and got the paint(spray bomb) from a local paint shop and I think it cam out alright. it is not completely perfect but hey it a hell of a lot better than the holes and dents I had in my original one.

Looks good. Minus the front plate, but I know you guys up North have to have them.

Damn, I would love to find a junkyard that would give away a coupe bumper for $30. Looks like its in really good shape too. Paint looks decent, I would have really laid on the clear and wet sanded/ polished it though. Thats a big piece of the car.

yea I am pretty sure that the guy that checked me out had no clue what he was doing and I wet sanded it the other night while it was raining and plan on getting some more clear coat soon, I agree its a big piece of the car.... I just couldn't stand looking at the messed up bumper anymore

will post more pic when its all done

Wow! I would never say that the bumper cover is from the junk yard! Looks no worse than mine I got for around $200 from an online store (https://www.carid.com/bumper-covers/). Lucky you are to get such good deal, as I've checked out plenty of local junk yards and never managed to find anything worthy. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

The bumper looks sick! I know this is kinda old, but have you made any other mods to the car? I'd love to see them! Red's my favorite color too =)

I agree that it looks good. The paint matches the body color.
