Ok, not to go into details but I need to replace some parts on my car and was wondering if you guys could help me with what fasteners you used in the holes. It's been so long since I had any in there I'm not sure if it's the "push lock" or the "christmas tree" kind.

Basically it's the bumper onto the black part that goes under the engine, and then also the wheel wells that goes into the front bumper. It's all the pieces that would have the head facing down to the ground.

Does this make sense to anyone?

Thanks a ton!

I have a funny story involving almost all the push pins for the center underbody tray having gone missing causing my hood to flutter at 110+ at VIR. I'll have it in a thread soon...

Great find Curtis, those lil bast*rds disappear like a matching sock every time my car is apart. They even disappear out of a sealed plastic bag.

ot but any of you guys know where the screw/fastners are located to tighten up the bumper up to the headlights. I have a small gap under my headlights from my last round of mods and the screw in the upper wheel well going towards the front only tightens up the edge

There is a plastic sandwich piece the holds the bumper to the upper fender, this allows for some adjustment. I just had a helping had push the bumper towards the headlight as I tightened the bolt closest to the fender well and it sucked right up.

Anytime. Also sometimes the headlight washer hose gets in the way of the bumper seating so ensure its out of the way.
