Well like you guys, I'll keep an eye on this and see how it goes... yeah if they make it a little more flexible like in the videos, then we're good.

It looks like the driver's side fits well. But I'm not sure what's going on near the passenger side headlight. It's like the bumper has a crease there or something.

Sigh... and all I wanted was a lip for my SVT bumper...

Holy crap! The SVT lip is $124 plus shipping!! That's half of what this bumper costs.

Well it's good to see im not the only person with compliants. The bumper glares almost three inches at the bottom . It doesn't fit around the headlights with out flaring. It cracked in the corners as we tried to test fit.

Secondly, I pulled my fenders off and removed the entire front end in an effort to adjust it too look good . I understand that it won't be perfect out of the box but in order to even paint it u have to put it
on wait for it to crack and then fiberglass it , fill it and sand it. Once fiberglassed it won't be able flex making the duraflex pointless.

It was a great effort to attempt this but more time and care should have been put inmto a mould. Lastly it should be polyurethane , if it was, the complaints that we all have wouldn't be at hand . Since polyurethane will flex , twist, and bend ,not crack!.

Well that sucks to hear. Looks like I probably won't be bother with this bumper if its going to have these issues and crack so easily. Don't want to have to spend another $100+ in materials and time to try to get it to look right.

May get their ProDTM bumper instead. Know someone who has had one for over a year and has hit stuff with it and the bumper is still perfect. No cracks or anything. Seems the ProDTM was built really well with plenty of "flex" materials in it. Imagine they had most of the ProDTM bumpers made at the same time.

My only other option is a urethane one from GPwerks if they ever make them????? The urethane is easy to work with. But I don't know if they'll ever get them going. Could get a Reiger but that's $650+ shipping. Too much $$$$ for my taste.

Again, glad ED made the attempt but I think; as mentioned, some test fitting of the new bumper should have been done. This probably would have revealed this problem which would have allowed the product to be modified to fit and look correctly then a new mold could have been made with these changes.

I'm picking up the rear bumper I needed to complete a "kit" tomorrow... test fitting all of it happens this week. Paint and mount should happen within the next month or so.

Pics will absolutely follow!

the cracking wasnt gettin better. i realized that even if i patched it, it would prolly become more rigid and even more prone to cracking. so much for dura"flex"
