    Finally getting both bumpers on the car. This is the first time that I have ever seen the bumpers on this car. The passenger side stuck out about 1/4" further from the header panel than the drivers side, so I modified the bracket to pull the bumper closer to the header. I didn't modify the bumpers, just the passenger side bracket. At first I thought about letting it ride, but my wife noticed that they were different, so I knew I better fix it. This was alot of work, but now both bumpers sit at the same place on both sides.

    I got the nos front spoiler mocked up, Overall it fit really well. The finish is a little rough, not sure if I will leave it or refinish it.

    Looks good. I have been looking at some and I don't know if it is me or what but some peoples front spoilers just look flatter than others. Like they don't angle forward enough. Thought maybe was difference between RS and full bumper or maybe it is just me. Yours looks good Russ.
