08 Sedan to 09 Coupe Front

So Im opening this up, since I have time right now.

I switching out my 08 Sedan front bumper cover to a 09 Coupe's front.
I needed to repaint my front bumper so instead I purchased an 09 and am having that painted.
I bought the bumper off of ebay for only $50 it cost me more for shipping but luckly I was the only bidder.

The bumper is due to arrive tomorrow, then off to paint on Monday! For now I have a couple of pics of the bumper that were sent to me by the seller and pic of my car. Hopefully everything goes well I will have more pictures and updates over the next two weeks of one of the first sedans with the coupe front.

Sorry dude

So quick update, I went to ford before work today. As you can see in the picture of the 09 bumper there is not plastic mesh, so I went to Ford to see how much that is going to cost me. I know how dealers are and expected it to be around $110. Luckily? it only is going to cost $64.65. Ordering it on Wed. Should be here by friday.

So the bumper showed up today! Luckily I didnt get scamed and its not in 42 pieces. After a rigorous look over there is no real damage other than paint. And the person who shipped it even filled the couple of deeper scratches. So all it needs is sand primer paint !!!

Pictures after arriving home and getting it outta the box.

It doesnt come with the plastic but itll only cost me 65$ from ford. What other pieces were you talking about? I checked and my aftermarket fogs will fit very nice inside the holes and I have since started to work on mounting them.
