Allright I just bought the c-west rear bumper and I took of my old bumper and the crash bar. I had a few questions I thought you guys would know the answers to for sure.

Do I HAVE TO remove these to put on the JDM rear bumper. I took the crash bar off, but will it still be okay if I leave these on. ( Don't want to leave them in the garage and loose them in all the f-in clutter). I am talking about the grey mounts for the crash bar. Will they fit in there still?



What the hell is the this random wire that was in my brash bar? This musn't have been directly from Lexus. Did my body shop f*ck something up?



Should I put the foam piece in the new one or was that in there for no reason but ot fill in area below the crash bar?


Thanks guys :D

I was guessing airbag sensor too, but why the fuck would my body shop completley disconnect that? :pissed: I need to see if there was anywhere that it could have been connected to.

Thanks bud! 8)

I was kinda worried about it for a while.

Now, anybody know about that foam thing? I just took off the crash bar mounts; it didn't look like they were going to fit.

My friend has the C-West kit on his IS. I think I remember him telling me that had to make a custom foam thing that was SUPER thin to get his kit on.

a little welding. Not much. Just get a tube, weld on a square plate and bolt it up.
