Dilemma

Ok so I have an aftermarket bumper I was just about to get painted red and put on my car. It was aftermarket, it wouldn't have looked half bad. Anyway I was forced to stare at my car today for 30 minutes and was thinking, I definitely want to do the G5 conversion in the rear. A G5 rear bumper with the taillights. My question is this, should I just stick with my original plan and get the bumper painted and just keep it. OR Put my stock one on until I get the rear G5 setup. OR Get my aftermarket bumper painted and then keep that until I get a new G5 setup. Need some input, thank you.

I will be doing the G5 conversion by hopefully next winter. I am getting the G5 trunk, lights and bumper from the junkyard. I will have the holes filled for the wing and sell the wing.

alright, i'll stick with my setup, it was either that project or build my motor. I think the fox hole will have more fun installing new rods and pistons instead of a bumper
