At the time it didnt seem like a waste of money, i was expecting a perfected f2 bumper.. not this... but hey we live we learn..

and blue I know, my only resolution at this time is to custom fit it. Im going to rename it too lol LouBombRS Replica.. bastards.. and yea be weary, because if they are cutting corners, then everything is going to end like this..

Capaldi has nothing.

And sadly you need more than just the fenders, bumpers and skirts. Hurtinfocus is working on fiberglass RS pieces right now. Maybe a thought for down the road?

I'm sorry I don't mean to offend you in saying it was a waste of money to begin with. Just after seeing the quality.

I stand corrected. Good to know since they had told someone on FJ they only had some suspension stuff left they were trying to clear it out and had no body parts.

Sucks about fitment, but can't wait to see it done.
