If it's all there and not damaged and you can get it for a reasonable price, you should grab it. Even if you decide not to use it, you could probably sell it and make some money.

I think all you'd have to do to make it that front end kit work on your 2nd generation PT is change to the earlier tear drop head light assemblies and the upper grill. It looks like that's all there. Ya gotta figure this kit new probably cost well over $1000.00. If you get it for a great price it might be cheaper than replacing your bumper cover with a stock one. Besides, with the ground effects side pieces installed, your PT should be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! Go for it.
Happy PTin', ptprice

You don't need to speak French, AJ. I'm sure they understand the language of cash just fine.

Let us know what you decide. I for one think that scrap yard body kit'd make you an awesome PT.

I used a good aftermarket original type front bumper cover I found on the internet on SOOO BIG. I think I paid about $200 for it. It was very close in gauge thickness, shape and design. You can see how well it worked out on the front end photo insert of SOOO BIG in my information.

A short internet search found the original type below listing at around $100. It might need a bit of finagling to fit but that price is nice.

FYI With a bit of searching I found this Xenon kit, w/o the side kit listed at about $195 plus shipping. Maybe an internet search could give you a bench mark on value and what to pay. Perhaps other Forum members can give you more of a value insight.

I would defenitly pick it up if I was in the area, however it is 8 hours away. If I am somehow up there anytime I will pick it up. I am more looking for a used bumper that is already painted the right color, I think rockauto has one for like $50 but it would cost $500 for shipping here

There's lots of sellers with these on eBay. This is just the one that I took and chance on and they did a good job.

You might contact them and see if they will ship to the Great White North at a reasonable rate.
