Default Rear bumper cover question

I need to get a new rear bumper cover for my '03 GT. I have found a couple of older used ones but someone told me that they won't work on the GT. Is this true? What is the difference between the GT cover and the NA? Is it just the paint?

Thanks

are you talking an after market cover or a roll pan? The covers go over the exsisting bumper, where as the roll pans replace the bumper.[:I]

I found an OEM bumper cover from a 2002 PT to replace mine. How is this cover different from the 2003? Will it work properly if painted?

I am also thinking of getting a Xenon rear bumper cover to go over my damaged rear bumper but I was told that it will not fit the GT. Is this true?

Bah. I should see no reason why it shouldnt fit. The FRONT fascia is different on the GTs but even the n/a bumpers will bolt on...or at least Im assuming as much b/c aftermarket kits work fine.

Test: If someone with a GT has an aftermarket rollpan fit with no problems, then a bumper off a n/a (naturaly-aspirated) PT will fit fine as well...

I would sell you my old bumper once my rollpan comes in but I think I may hang on to it, just in case some jerk cop wants to write me a ticket for it.

Pteazer has a great deal on single outlet rollpans: $200 plus $115 ship (the shipping is outrageous IMO)

Price is more like $449 on the PTeaser roll pan. plus ship. another thing is if you back into someone or they just touch you in the rear, chances are you will have some expensive damage, the roll pans have no protection as compared to the stock bumper with steel reinforcement. (been there, done that, saw it, PAID FOR IT)!

Awwwww...but I wanna piece of your rear! muaha


I am interested in this also, I want another stock bumper cover that I can just swap. Aren't the GT exhaust cutouts larger than the NA's?

Rolo you are correct. The GT's do have a larger exhaust opening.
