Tomzautotuning?

Nope, just TomTomTuning. It's my form handle/username.


Anyone have any thoughts on my original questions? I'll quote it below...

Are the grille stays truly needed? I thought I read some where in this thread that they were not needed.

71124-SVA-A50 STAY, R. FR. GRILLE
71129-SVA-A50 STAY, L. FR. GRILLE?

And what about the foam absorber, how important is that? 71170-SVA-A50
At $50 bucks, if it's not needed then I'll skip it but not if it's important.

Not meaning to beat a dead horse here guys but I'm in need of a new bumper and i may as well do this swap. I'm so confused on what I need. Please someone help me out what I need to make this an oem feel swap. What can I reuse, and I plan to get fogs off ebay so I don't care about the inserts.

So, I want to do this conversion to my 07 Coupe.. but its Galaxy Gray. If the front bumper comes unpainted from Honda, I think I would be better off buying it from a parts warehouse around me, for about 50 bucks. I am just curious to the front lip, I need that piece unpainted? Or am I better off buying aftermarket, since they don't offer Galaxy Gray for 09+

I believe they come painted. I would be a better option for you to just buy a used OEM one and paint it your color if Honda doesn't offer it painted in the color you want than buying a new aftermarket $50 bumper. The reason I say this if because of fitment. Just because they say it fits doesn't mean it fits like an original Honda part.

Again, if it's not available from Honda in the color you want, a used OEM part painted your color is better than a new aftermarket part painted your color.

I learned the hard way on my EJ8, aftermarket body panels don't always fit perfect like original Honda parts.
