    New Bumper!

    So I had my stock bumper repainted by a bodyshop in LA and every three months or so the paint would start peeling. After they had stripped and repainted the same bumper three times, I finally just asked for my money back. I decided to take that money and buy an aftermarket bumper and paint it myself. The one I chose isn't my favorite design, but it was decent and readily available in Duraflex fiberglass. I cut an extra billet grill to fit it and put chrome trim around it to match the front grill. Here are a few pics, tell me what you guys think :

    Re: New Bumper!

    Honesty Mike, I like it. The lines flow really nice, the only thing I do not like is that there are no fog lights any longer, but I could live with it. I definitely like the lower grill portion, Cadillac should have incorporated that into the OEM design. Plus I have never been a great fan of the tow hooks nor their cut outs.

    All in all 2 thumbs up!

    BTW if you painted the fascia, kudos, looks factory wtg.

    Thanks for the compliments. I am still thinking about mounting some round fog lights behind the lower billet grill, but haven't yet decided on that.
