Vega Front Bumper INSTALLED!

Sorry for the wait guys but here it is =P let me know what you think. Sorry that my car was dirty and it was raining. I will take some better ones this weekend Also compared to stock, height from the ground was only half an inch different so nothing too crazy!

Only modifications are as follows:

Remove plastic shelf.


Buy bolts to replace the stock ones since the washer won't clear the new bumper.


And pop the fender well piece inside the bumper.



And now for what you guys really want:









Please let me know what you think and if anyone has any questions feel free to ask here or PM me.

Tint in 3 weeks and wheels in June so stay tuned.

Looks like a muzzle you put a dog.



I know you've said you are a student on a tight budget, but shouldn't your money have been invested in a drop + spacers instead? Aggressive body kits only make sense with a drop and aggressive offset wheels. I just think it looks cheesy?

A+ for effort I guess..

It has the potential to look like this if done properly:

Nice work... Just don't know how I feel about the vents on the side of that kit. Just looks like its going to create so much drag on the front of the car? Maybe just cut them out and make a tube to funnel the air to the back side of the disk breaks???

But nice work dude, good luck with the rest.

Slider,

That looks like a variation of GCkid's bumper. The koreans seem to have different foglight cut outs? Notice there is no upper vent.

You are quite correct, sir. The badging on it is also different. Hrm...

Well I obviously have those planned. Getting rid of the stock bumper was my second priority. My first was getting rid of the stock tail lights. Next is wheels. Then maybe a drop.

Lol. I like the kit, personally for me though, too aggressive, but i definitely like it on someone elses car, (too much work trying to get rims that compliment it, suspension, so forth.)

It just looks like hell. If you can refrain from doing any of that... it's yours"

GCKid, glad to see you moving forward & thanks for the heads up on the longer bolts needed. As for the bumper itself, not my thing. Then again, I like the stock bumper, at least more so than anything else out at this point.
