i'd say wait til spring to get the bumper. or if you find a good deal again, pick it up and save it. just my opinion. and that's a decent checklist. where is your switch for the leds ?

Hey once you paint the spoiler don't wash it with any soap and don't wax it for at least 2-3 weeks. Water only so it cures properly.

Thanks for the info! I was actually planning on washing it after I got the spoiler on, so thanks for telling me!

Update on Mikayla. lol So my buddy was going to come over, he decided he was too tired. I was like ah thats alright ill just reglue the LEDs and mount the subs. Well I wound up doing that, and then ryan came over anyways. So lets see. We pulled the seat and found the problem. The flimsy poopy metal bar was broken off. I just removed it. Much comfier, but i imagine the seat will wear quicker. Then I replaced the little plastic thing to hold the prop rod for the hood. I did all of that while ryan was pulling the lower torque mount off (think its also called dogbone? idk...lol). Well we then realized what the real problem was....the bracket for the mount is shattered. So I technically dont need the mount itself, but I will replace it anyways while im at it. I can only find the part from CFM and ebay. CFM for 44 and some change and ebay for 45. Ill just use ebay, the part is closer so itll get here sooner. I was going to use my car for camping on saturday, but now I might not. We put the car back together the way it was. Ive been driving like that for 2 months now so I doubt itll hurt anything. lol I just wanna have it fixed before I go to cleveland. Oh and I also figured out the euro reverse light connectors I picked up werent right. So I gotta swap those out for new ones.

Broke the bracket....that sucks. Guess it'd be ok since you been driving that way for awhile. Anthe safe side just don't rev the engine or accelerate hard. That should help keep the front/back rocked ng of the engine to a minimum until you get it fixed.

that's no fun. not sure if i'd trust an ebay part compared to cfm, jmo. but i'm sure it'll still last. so you got your leds all done up?

Yeah I just had to reglue them. The ebay one is the OEM part. Its the same thing as the cfm one. I just figured ebay would be easier since im so used to it.
