Are you going to add the SS deflector later or you going to do without.

There are three bolts that hold the bumper on that release the tabs to take off the bumper. Other than that good how to vid. I guess you could just pop it off but you could risk damaging the bumper.

Does anybody have a video on how to put a rear bumper ? I heard you need a heat gun to mold it a little ?

The rear bumper is just as easy as the front. Push pins along the trunk opening, two screws near the tail lamps, push pins in the wheel liners and a few along the bottom. If you're swapping to an SS rear, you'll need different wheel liners to do It properly.

I little plastic isn't going to reinforce them that much. I've never had a problem. If I ever do get them it will be from a wrecked cobalt ss because I wouldn't want to drop money on them haha.

The cheapest bet would be to get them from a salvage yard as you won't save to pay shipping. I've seen some used ones listed on eBay for $50 a piece. I thought that was laughable as you can get new genuine gm pieces for the cost of one used one.

Add them or don't add them, that's your choice.

I would get the lower valance. Theyre cheap now compared to a few years ago. $175 shipped for the front and about $185 for the rear. Back the. Used to be about $300! Each!

Worse part of having a stealth grey metallic cobalt is having to paint any SS body parts I find in a junk yard.

Agreed! I have that paint on my car. Also, it's a metallic paint which is more expensive and harder to match. On the bright side, there is an abundance of wingless trunks in this color. I want to go wingless eventually. I think it looks much more streamlined.

Yea paying for the paint is not a fun thing to do. I was thinking about doing the same, but it is not high up on my list.
