Interesting name on CL lol.

To answer your question, this bumper will mount using the factory locations/brackets. Our unique chemical composition makes our parts flexible but very dense. Additionally, we make our molds in such a way that certain areas (ex: mounting points) are thicker/more reinforced than the rest of the part. This eliminates any "sagging" that may be associated with other urethane parts.

Yeah it has nothing to do with Civics. When I was 9 this was the name I made for AOL and 15 years later I still use it for everything. Well I'm taking the plunge, I signed up for the group buy, even though theres a Shine kit for sale here in town on Craigslist, I'll wait and go urethane. I'm tired of cracking my front lip every-time a leaf blows into the road.

I just messaged Panda, the guy who owns the white car in the FB screenshots on page two to shed some light on the fitment of the Piece.

Here's the before on the left, I'm to the right of the supra, somehow that guy parked there when we weren't looking, it's close enough to an SC I guess.

We got 10 , group buy is active . Let's get it to at least 15 people so deposit by the 23rd is lowered to $250 . Win win for those going to get one.

This will be a lot better than the original Auto Couture or Shine kit since it is poly-urethane, less chance of breaking.

^ YES!
If you break a poly bumper, you have many other issues, right?

Yeah after cracking 3 fiberglass lips that costs more than this bumper I think this may be the way to go. These streets don't like the SC.

Wow ... deposit is now 50% . Thanks for being so kind to our forum members.

You got a deal @931 shipped for two. You can put my name again on that list. I am taking TWO AC style bumpers made of poly. That is an awesome deal. Will get 2 of my SCs with that AC kit look

And now I will start bugging you to eventually get the POLY side skirts and rear bumper done once you have delivered these group buy of the front bumper .

Count me in for a complete kit too if you do them. I'm done buying fiberglass.

Wow! That's going to be sweet when you have them completed. Wish your product was around before I went with my +97 conversion with Fujin lip last year.

But I may just end up changing it out to yours after I see the completed product and I'll sell my Fujin lip and +97 bumper then.

APTech - are there hole markers for the front bumper to accomodate the front tag / plate ? I hope there is none cause not every state needs a tag in front. For those who needs one, they can just drill a hole .

Now you got 3 confirmed order for the Poly-urethane side skirts and rear bumper (Auto Couture / Shine Kit Style) !

A full poly-urethane body kit will allow me to lower the Black Pearl and one Red Mamba , 2 of my 2jzGTE SCs without worrying that it will get damaged anytime soon . It is the only aftermarket kit design that I will install on an SC. In my opinion , it is the best design out there.
