The front bumper is definitely the hardest part of the swap. It took two of us 3.5 hours.

I think it looks pretty good myself. I think this valance won't be breaking anytime soon and there is more of this style out there if needed replaced.

Can't believe how easy the swap was though. Helps when basically you have 2 parts cars.

Jon it looks better all cleaned up. Is that black side markers? I look at the pics about every 2 hours. I think I really want to do mine now. I gotta rip the whit car down for the bumper support and headlight panels. Grr I envy you.

Looks better too with the fogs on. I take it you got bulbs right away. Haha

The TGP valance won't break if you avoid curbing it. My black car still has the original valance on it. ;) I don't drive my car to certain places because I know the entrances are steep and I'll break the hell out of the valance. At some places around the city, I've nearly scraped the valance on my 1993 GP(BYP kit) and it has 4x4-like ground clearance. :laugh:

Agreed. Just don't run over curbs or park the front end so close to the curb and you'll be fine.

am i the only person who thinks that he just did a really terrible thing to a TGP, you just removed the only unique exterior part......not to mention it looks completly out of place to the rest of the cladding...i just coughed up the 260$ for one at the dealer and had it and my bumper painted. Im not having any issues, just dont ram curbs

No you're definitely not the only person who thinks that. I get a lot of crap for it, but I don't care. Its my car and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the new look. The rest of the car will get b4u.
