Agreed it's pretty straightforward you don't even need to use the three bolts in corner mounting the bumper to the fender. could damage the bumper.if you do use really small ones ..honestly the hardest part with snapping the grills into the new bumper. they're a pain in the ass.

I'm assuming you both painted the bumper impact bar black since mine is the color of my car. Was there any other prep needed?

My bumper/car is at painters but I do plan on painting bumper bar black. I may add mesh too behind the open holes. Also going to get it wrapped in xpel after 2 weeks cure time. My anticipation is killing me knoeing I'm close to seeing this happen.

Not looking forward to snapping the grills in. We attempted on test fitting but gave up.

If I have a 2SS/RS and get this bumper, what headlights can I use with it? Can I use the 6th Gen lights or since I have the RS the harness won't match?

anyone ever find a bellypan that would work with this bumper? Would the bellypan work from a zl1?

Im not at installation yet and my car got hit in a parking lot hit and run.

I feel the one I linked here will work but not without cutting.

I seen my bumper painted but hard to get excited when my fender looks like this.

I've had the bumper for some weeks now, came painted but with some imperfections. Not too bad so I'm still trying to get everything together. I painted the grills myself, but I've been trying to but the grills on the past two days and its extremely hard. Got the lights and everything, I might need a 13-14 harness from what I heard, but I'm stuck on the grills fml. I also bought the zl1 belly pan since mine didn't come with it just incase.

Harness is needed for the lights.

The grills are a super bitch to snap in place and the bottom chin is a nightmare.. be careful not to damage the paint on the bumper installing it.
