Front bumper question...

In the picture you can tell that where my front quater panel meets the bumper it is uneven. I think that there is a piece that extends down to make it a flush transition between the back of the bumper and the quater panel but Im not sure. If you know where I can order this piece let me know. Thanks alot....

My name is Kenny and I manage a paint and body shop in FLower Mound, TX.

From what I can see in the photo, it looks like you have a GT bumper on an LX car. If it is the same on the other side then that is most likely your problem. You probably have the wrong bumper on the car.

I also noticed that your RT Fender does not line up very well with your door. Not sure if you have some structural damage or if it is just prroly aligned. Take a picture of the front of the bumper head on if you don't mind.

there is a piece that is like a filler that completes that gap. It also has the body side molding attached to it, and it looks as though someone has taken all the moldings off all the way around.

It has a LX front bumper on it, definatly not a GT bumper.

You have the LX nose not the GT but you do need to get the pieces to make it flush, as for the door to front fender it looks like the bracket in the door jam was not put back in place. Its a bitch to get that part right.
