Yea im rather depressed. I spent like a really long time shaving the foam then realized it was pointless because it was only an inch thick...So I removed the foam completely and saw the corners were hitting the metal of the bumper. I heard maybe 3 or 4 people tell me that all I needed to do was shave the foam and I would be good. So yup. Im open to opinions. lol

Its a legit OEM euro part. It has the ford markings. Ive been doing research and it is supposedly the 02 st170 bumper.

Yeah I was just reading all of that, and there is a link to the part I need in that thread. Unfortunately that person no longer ships to the U.S. If I cant find anything else, maybe I will email him and offer to pay shipping.
