Default FGPSTUFF LP-560 bumper install with pics

So I bought this fiberglass bumper from FGPSTUFF. I bought the bumper and SL side skirts with carbon fiber splitter shipped to Houston, TX for total price including shipping $2400.

You can probably get the just the bumper for $1300 shipped.

Came in a crate packed nicely

I took the bumper to a body shop for fitment and paint. Bodyshop had to do some adjustments to get it to fit and also needs finishing to get it ready for paint.

Fitment is pretty good for an aftermarket bumper with little adjusting. They will do some modifications to try to get it looking perfect.

Initial install looks pretty good to me..what do you guys think?

The fitment looks pretty good to me from the photos. The problem I had with my aftermarket bumper was the side turn signal marker didn't sit properly. With a little work my body shop got everything straight. The biggest problem I normally see with aftermarket bumpers are a gap between the hood and bumper. Don't forget to post a pic of the finished bumper.

What color is your car?

Thanks for sharing post!

You are right they all need some work, I still think it needs some adjusting, which they are working on. So far it's pretty damn good for a $1100 bumper.

I'm planning on updating this thread often with pics as I get them from the shop.

My car is Rosso Andromeda

$1300 is very Cheap for this bumper. I was researching prices out there and seems like they are all going for $3k +. I might consider this bumper I just want to see the final install and paint on yours.

Congrats.

I took the plunge and ordered, Let's see how the finished product comes out. When I sell the car, next owner will have the option to remove it and install the OEM one, which I'm keeping.

Middle piece is the carbon fiber splitter. I'll take better pics of it. I also got the SL side skirts they are not carbon fiber tho. Wrapping them in carbon fiber
