Fitment

how do bodyshops do fitments? like, say the front bumper is a little too wide or big, what do they do to make it to size?

they shave it, add more to it, bend it in or out...

one what that works great is the put the kit in the sun, put a heavy structure at one end, and another at the other end... then spray it with water and leave it in the sun all day... this should bend it into the desired direction thumbsup

inwards... outwards... whatever way you need to go, to get the bumper how you want it to fit.

you gotta remember, that when bumpers are shipped from the manufacture, they are stacked on top of each other, and may bend if left in this position for several days during transport... or shipping to your address from the shipper... this is normal and why its ALWAYS recommend that you take your kit to a PROFESSIONAL for installation

Professional = bodyshop with much experience at installing aftermarket body kits and other such pieces... not just any normal bodyshop who only specialize in insurance claims and accident repairs
