Fitment of FG Blitz front

Quote:
Fitment & Installtion notes:
The majority of the fiberglass Blitz bumpers do NOT fit perfectly, but there are at least two companies dedicated to the perfect fitment of the Blitz - you just have to do your own research/ask around to find which companies those are.

T he urethane front fitment is really nice - the trick about buying it in urethane though is the fact that allot of the attachment pieces are larger then they need to be - so you WILL have to get a professional installation done with this. The installer will have to shave corners and drill the holes in exact locations for where the bumper should attach to. (This is a good thing because you will get better fitment this way)
I bought the fiberglass Blitz from the Ecelica store and now I have my doubts now that I found this now and read it? I know some who have the fiberglass front but is it really that bad? Who here has it and how good is it? Another thing is how does the bumper attach? I don't see any parts like the stock one has...help

the bumper attaches to the same locations that your stock bumper attaches to...

one bolt inside each fender (two total)
and five bolts across the top of the bumper

..this is a total of 7 bolts that are holding ALL front bumpers to your car (Stock or Aftermarket)

NOTE: the plastics under the car do not get attached to most aftermarket bumpers.

Unless it's made with high quality fiberglass they dont held up too well..
For example Veilside uses fiberglass with resin... it's like FG with mixture of plastic..
I'm not sure but tell me if I'm wrong..
These stuff held up very well...
Urethane will not crack.. it will held up much better then FG... but it will tear apart if it gets damged...
Lots of time I've heard they have bad fitment problem with FG but from ecelica.com I haven't heard problem with fitment...

Well, I'll just have to wait and see how good the FG blitz is. I hope it fits good enough and looks clean without big spaces...
