It's time consuming. Plus the bolts right next to the trunk latch are semi-hard to get off/on. I had very little trouble changing mine out. Good luck and post some pics when you get it on.

Re: Woot! found a bumper

Nice find...that's a fair price if the paint's in good shape and has the GT exhaust cutouts.

As 19Delta said, it can be time consuming, plus making sure you have all the bolts in and that everything lines up correctly...check your gaps, make sure their even and that the edges are flush. Sometimes bumpers do flex and bend out of shape if their off the car for a while, but it should work its way back once on the car. Don't forget your side markers too (now is a good time to smoke them with tint)

Re: Woot! found a bumper

you can do it on the ground. no lift needed. take your time and be patient, seriously, getting the nuts back on some of those bolts can be a pain in the ***.

It takes about 10 minutes to remove and 10 to reinstall.

Remove all trunk carpeting, you will find the bolts this way. If I remember correctly there are 2 bolts on each side and 3 along the back wall of the trunk (by the bumper). I have no idea what size they are anymore and you will need a deep well socket.

Just take your time, nothing to it.

Get a friend to help so you dont scratch up the car in sliding it off/on, its not to hard ive never personally done it but there isnt to much to it.
