Question Replacing rear and front bumpers

Hey yall

So I'm converting my V6 front end to the GT front end, as well as removing the 2010 single-exit exhaust rear valence and replacing it with a 2011 dual-exit exhaust valence I got from a friend, in order to install a custom true dual system. But that's for another thread. This thread is specifically for the bumper removal.

My question(s) here lie with how I get the front and rear bumpers off. I have seen lots of tutorials and stuff online so I definitely know how to, but I haven't seen what size screws/bolts I will need to be removing and reinstalling. I know that a majority of it is held on by clips and pins, but what tools will I need for the rest? Just want to make sure i have everything before I start on this. Thanks.

Not sure if it's the same for a 2010 but for my 2014 for the front bumper all I did to remove it and get out a small dent was remove the radiator cover by taking out the plastic pins and then under it you will see the bolts you have to remove that are holding the bumper I believe there's four not a hundred percent sure but you will know when you remove the radiator cover. Just take a ratchet and take those sucked out. Then you have to go underneath and remove that shield in order to get access to a sensor that's connected to the bumper and any fog light harnesses also to install the shield on the gt cover. There's about 20 screws holding the shield and it can get annoying i used a drill with an adaptor for an 8 ratchet socket to remove them quickly careful not to break them when reinstalling. Then just reverse the process but you have to fit the gaps just right so be sure to move the bumper around to where you want it before you say you are done it will take a lot of fitting to get it right if you are a perfectionist like me. Good luck and have fun. BTW it's a fairly quick process it took me about 10 minutes or so to get it removed. Any other questions let me know.

Hi, did you do this already?

I have my car in the body shop for a new front-end, and they were hesitant to order the GT parts, in case they wouldn't fit.
