Default Easy Fix For Those Holes in Your Bumper!!

I too had those ugly very noticeable holes on my front bumper. We tried to hide it with quite a few different methods but still ugly. I bought his bumper trim they sell to fix the problem and added an extra look to my PT. I did place the bumper trim lower then what it called for. But it still looks great. It just does not fall all the way back to the wheel well. Plus I added those headlight rings. The gaps there were very bothersome, and the headlight rings fixed that problem and also adds to the bumper. Here's the link, incase you want to see what that bumper trim or chrome rings would look like on your PT. Plus tell me what ya think. http://www.ptcruiserlinks.com/galler...ry.php?cat=538

Very Nice Hooligan!! I was thinking of getting that lower grill peice too. Is it a strong plastic? I had ordered interior light covers. They were so flimsy I had to send them back. I just want to be sure that bottom grill is strong before I order it. Those flimsy cover things make me nervous now.

Both the lower grille and the chrome bumper strips came from raceandstreet.

The lower grille is 3/8' solid metal rods welded to 4 strips that has a bolt in each piece, it is a bit- - to install as you have to remove the upper grille, but it sets off the lower grille.

The bumper strips go on with 3M tape. I didn't have bumper holes to fill!!!

Yep exactally...I got the bumper chrome & the headlight chrome from Race & Street. PT Boutique has it also but more expensive. It measures 1 1/2" wide. The 3m tape is already attached, we just peeled it off as we went. Comes with instructions too.
I sure do like the look of that lower grill. I'll have to see about getting that soon!!. Sure would show the whole front end nicer. Thanks
