If it's urethane, it should be able to mold back if you sit it in the sun.

Any body shop can probably get it fixed for you, but they'll probably do the same thing. Just keep getting it warm and fitting it on till you get it good.

Are you talking about the mold lines? If so then those have to be sanded down. Lol, shouldn't come as a surprise since the bumper wasn't prepped for paint right out of the box. But you can sand it down yourself if you're ever bored ;)

And yeah...the bumper will take it's normal shape when you take it out of the box and leave it in the sun for a bit

okay im sorry that i havent posted pics, i havent had a chance to but my car comes out of the shop on the 24th and i have pics how i got the bumper, soo i will show you guys before and after, just givesome time you know what imma see if i go one of these days and take some pics of it, that is if its still assembled,

i got the rs standard front bumper,

wings west side skirts, and wings west big mouth rear bumper

okay like i said when i started this post it had some things sticking up on the side due to the way it was shipped
i have the pics

okay soo those were fixed when i self tapped the top part of the bumper but the bottom


http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g275/cubanpimp707/006.jpg

i had to leave the bumper for a couple of days in my back yard with one of those trunk organizers and a jack stand each pocket, i put it in the top of the bumper where it was sticking out and the weight and sun molded it back to place if you guy dont get it i will do it with my stock bumper and take pics

last but not least when its installed your going to have to shave the corners of the bumper down a litlle so it looks like it fits like stock im very picky and i used to spary cars soo i know how its suppose to look and a little something about bodywork, if you look at the majority of people who got this same bumper. the front of it is wavy, or disalined, if you buy this make sure you got a good shop that know about polyuratane, becouse its a pain in A** to get it to fit decent.


when i get my car back i will post pics with it i did the lambos on it , soo i post the pics hope this helps,

so you bought it and had to put time and work into it to even get it to fit, then a shop had to fix it because it was wavy.........sounds like it'll at least look good in the end though

Very nice!

Jpmoney, can you please link me to the foglights you got from walmart?

I will most likely be getting this bumper within 4-6 months.

F2 provides you with a mesh for the lower grill? Just double checking.

Thanks for all the answers my man!

Yeah, absolutely.

How is the bumper coming along? When do you get it back?

Have you checked how the fog lights light up the street?
