Yeah I'm well aware that there will be some imperfections, but lets hope that mine is one of those that fits with without doing much....

Hi guys, im in the process in getting my front bumper done.
AIT bumper picked up directly from warehouse.
one of my buddies works in a body shop, he helped me fitted it in about a hour. he also stated the one i got was pretty rough so a lot of sanding will need to be done.

Last time I checked AIT didn't make those reps anymore. Maybe I was just out of my mind. Definitely on the list for me in the future.

at one point it was out of stock, but when i checked again it was in stock. so your statement may have been true so i am not so sure. but for locals call for CASH payment you would get a discount. warehouse is located in Chino

Yeah! I remember them being out of stock a few months ago. I took a look and shipping was like $170. Almost as much as the bumper itself. lol

The only poly is authentic. AIT makes them of FRP. The only other material I know being used on this replica is carbon fiber, and its a guy in the UK.

What would be a better choice? Getting the AIT rear bumper? That way I can have or switch over back to the stock if I ever need to. The rear lip is integrated into the bumper so I wouldn't have to deal with getting a nice flush fit for the lip part itself.

Another choice is to get a eBay replica trd rear lip. I may also get the stock bumper repainted at the same time too tho as there are some scratches. I might also have to get some tiger seal to try and get rid of any sagging gaps with the lip.
