Default Just another 2014 Fsport front bumper face lift!!!

Hey CL, I've been a little MIA on the forum for the past year or so due to work but ive been peeking in here and there. Ever since ive seen the front bumper conversions a few people have been doing, that's all Ive been thinking about haha.
So Id like to thank RVCAIS250 for showing me the most badass front bumper conversion ive seen so far! Plus I was very impressed with ThreeFive0's same front conversion he was brave enough to take on without any previous body work experience. Both you guys are the inspiration for me to get mine done now haha.
Anyways, I picked up all my parts for my 2014 Fsport front bumper conversion last week. Ive already taken the bumper off my 2006 IS350 and started lining everything up and figuring out my plan of attack. I also started cutting my original bumper this evening and will continue working on it the next couple weeks. My goal is to have the bumper all finished up and painted by the end of this month so I can make it to Toyotafest.
THE RESULTS!!!










THE START.....
A couple pics of the parts and bumpers together so far....




Ill have more progress pics to come as I go.

Not a big update yet. I cut up my 2006 bumper but haven't had time to start on the new one. Hopefully I can this wkend.




On a side note, I did get a couple goodies in the mail!

Thanks man. I haven't checked all the plastics when I was test fitting the bumper yet but I sure hope it all lines up!

Great work my friend!I was waiting for an update and I see you are done .I have seen the other two conversion photos and I believe all of you cut the bumper in different places.That confuses me a little .I see you kept the original bumper around the headlight and you unit the Fsport bumper just the lower part.I noticed you have done two cuts in the original bumper on both sides.May I ask why?

my guess is to keep the mounting tabs and avoid having to fill in the nike cutouts in the new bumper...

very innovative!
