Yea if you could do that, it would be great. I didnt think I needed anything besides the bumper, and the grill, and obviously fogs... Hmm I might need to have a chat with the guys over at my local Ford they said it should be direct switch.

it took me forever to find the site i was talking about, but i realized its only for the 08s and not the 09s, ill try to find it for the 09s though.

however, this does show you that are there are many different "components" to the bumper, and not just the cover itself. i do not know how many, if any, parts are interchangable, and what exactly you actually need to replace, but that should help.

ok i found this ford site as well, however it does not have the photos for the 09 coupe. it does have pricing for all parts though. the lower mesh grill costs 51 dollars from them. i would just call your local ford and ask all the parts that you need, i'm guessing you're going to need the bracket kits or whatever to hold it in place.

btw i gave you rep for your black out grill write up, i did that two weeks ago. as im looking on this sites for 09 coupe part prices, you saved me $120 lol

Thanks for the REP

K so after look at the pics and comparing size and thinking some more I dont think ill have to really get much.

My guess the energy absorber will work for the 09 coupe because same shap and size up there just no cut in for the license plate if anthing i may just have to shave a few inches off of it if it hang down to low.
Only Item then that I am really unsure of is the outer right and left reiforcement. For that one and to make sure that the energy absorber will work Im gonna go have a little chat with Ford tomorrow morning.

Thanks a ton for finding those websites. ReP added for the help!

Well progress right now is as such.

Bumper is at paint. :)

Energy absorber on 08 sedan will work on 09 coupe.

Mounting Brackets, well I was told by the ford parts guys they will work. But he was 104 years old, and really didnt get what I was trying to do. So Im gonna go back tomorrow to well tripple check.

With a little luck the swap will be complete by the end of next week.

Yea, over 100 and they can barely remember their name...
But I'm sure people have had a harder time with explaining mods to others.
"Welcome to home depot! what are you looking for today?"
"Garage door bottom seal."
"What for?"
"My car."
"umm..."

Yes that would be an odd conversation to have with a Home Depot Associate.

Well as sad as it is my bumper is still at my friends shop. This is what I get for wanting it done so cheap that I say you can keep it for a couple weeks if you need to and do it in your spare time :( oh well Im just impatient. I still havent made it over to Ford to order the mesh grill nor tripple check to make sure the outer reinforcements will work. But I have time. Maybe Monday.

Well for the time being I finally uploaded some photos I took after I did some sanding before I gave the bumper away to go get painted.

sorry crappy cell photos.






Yes I just put the bumper cover ontop of the one already there I had the car in the garage to touch up my grill
