Front came in but...

I recieved the front this morning, was so happy. As I was unwrapping it. I notice theres a big problem with my bumper. Some one or something was on top of it and its bent inwards.... wow, that pisses me off so damn bad . Here are the pictures. Enjoy as of now. Going in the shop on Thursday to get painted. I don't know if I want to finish it off with the rest of the lip kit, because I'm looking foward to a 05+ Acura RSX Type-s..











Goodbye you p.o.s immitation Blackwiddow front..

Fitment is pretty good, I just had to squeeze the bumper in a lil bit. Everything is cool though, was planning on ordering an OEM CF coupe hood but I dont want to put any more money down into the car. Getting a new car.

Looks real nice, just get the rest of the car (sides and rear) redone (meaning new parts ) and it'll be SUPER CLEAN! How does the lip fit?

Lip fits on there A+ PERFECT. I really want to buy the sides and rear, but I don't want to spend any more money on it since im selling it. Thats the part that makes me soo sad. I would love to see this car with the whole lipkit and lowered, but it's time to let it go.. Need something better.

EDIT: Still pending on wether to keep the car, or just go with the Rsx.. I have tons way more on my mind to put on the Accord. RSX really have nothing on mind but rims and a drop.. You guys choose for me. Accord or RSX?

this is the exact setup im planning on doing on my front end. i have a cf invader hood for the coupe, so it doesnt line up with my 99 sedan front bumper. and for $98 that is definatly not an OEM bumper. but it looks good though. all you need now is the coupe hood to get rid of that huge gap.

p.s. please take pics of the bumper to finder gap. i know the coupe front bumper has a bodyline that swoops up into the fender. i want to see how much metal work i am going to have to do to my sedan fenders. thanks.

The gaps are pretty bad on mine, still trying to figure out how to keep them from poppin out so much. Any ideas?



The part on the front that swoops up to the fender doesn't really bother me, I just don't like how the side of the bumper pops out a lil bit as in the first picture. ^^^

isnt bumpter supposed to go over that clip that sticking out. i think thats what clip there for. did you try to remove spash guard around wheel and see if you can do something from inside of bumper? my friend did that with his prelude. he screwed in bumper from inside


you think it would look good with 2 tone paint. black on bottom and leave blue on top? couse from color of bumper against blue looks really good

I've tried the clip thing, every time I try to push it in the clip it stays there for like a split second then pops right back out. Havn't tried removing the splash gaurds, but I will deff try that out and see if it'll work or not.

About the two tone paint, it really depends on how you do it I guess. The best two toned paint job I've seen on an Accord is "AxisAccord" but thats just me.

first off this is why an OEM bumper is better than an aftermarket bumper. fitment on aftermarket bumpers is poor 85% of the time. in this case i would suggest taking a ride over to your nearest honda dealerships parts dept. and get 2 new clips. from the pictures i cant tell if yours are worn or loose. after installing the new clips get the bumper lined up to where it needs to be with the 8mm phillips bolt at the ends of the bumpers LOOSE. next take a heat gun and SLOWLY heat the plastic. be careful because heatguns will melt wrinkle marks in the plastic if its held too close. if you dont have a heat gun, try a hair dryer, im not too sure if it will put out enough heat, youll have to hold it real close in order for it to work im sure. you'll also want to be wearing some kind of thick gloves so you dont burn your hands. as your heating youll want to lightly press on the bumper edge near the headlight that is sticking out. try to keep the heat away from the very corner where you'll be pressing. the area of the bumper you want to heat up is from, 3 inches along the bottom of the headlight where it meets the fender/bumper gap, to about 2.5 inches from the bumper end, then down about an inch from the bodyline. it helps to have 2 people on the next step. if you're coordinated enough 1 person can do it. next press in on the corner of the bumper where it meets the headlight/fender, pull out kind of firmly on the bottom edge of the bumper at the same time and then tighten up the 8mm phillips screw, all at the same time. keep pressure on the corner and have some ice nearby to quickly cool the plastic down and hopefully "freeze" the bumper in that state. keep pressure on the corner edge the whole time during cooling. that should fix your problem. whew......
