Bumper progress

Yea this thread isn't totally necessary but I wanted to make it.

I bought a SS bumper from CL and it seemed to be missing things (look at pictures below)



Ya it's totally missing the crossbar, but I didn't care it still has the rest, and it was $60. So I purchased the chrome cobalt grille which I thought would fit fine since you have to delete the crossbar. It will work! (Look at picture below)



Didn't put the chrome part on because it was being a PITA and we were losing light,but it definitely fit good! Fog lights are on order and licence relocation kit I will order tomorrow. Was thinking of doing OEM harness install for fogs but I don't think I will go that route anymore so doing aftermarket (still gotta double check how). My trim with fog will be shipping tomorrow too woohoo.

Day 123121:
Added the foglights, ran independent switch to them, i just gotta remember to never leave them on when i turn off the car or ill be in for a rude surprise. I didnt mount the switch anywhere i left it in the little cubby to the left of steering wheel because i still want to do OEM wiring

kinda funny how this all worked out..... you needed one with the crossbar and got one without, i needed one without and got one with.....
Im starting to lean more towards aftermarket install for fogs instead of OEM wiring too.... i don't have access to a tech-II and i remember reading something about it needing to be activated in the bcm..

Yea I read that also, don't know what's the truth! I would tell you to keep the one with the cross beam and put the TC grille but then it looks like a cobalt lol

I would think it would be easier to paint off the car.

Yes, you do need to enable fogs in "BCM" if you go with OEM installation.

Ive been thinking of doing something sort of along those lines, just modifying the crossbar slightly so i can put a pontiac emblem on it instead of a bowtie without it looking terrible.... i guess if it looks bad i just pull out the dremel and cut the crossbar off.... Can't have my G5 looking like a cobalt..........

I think thats what the seller of mine was trying to do (make it fit his G5) because he mentioned he has one. Be wary because once you cut that beam its over
