How should I fix my bumper?

I got a 97 base prelude, the stock front bumper with lip.
I would like to buy a new one from the ebay, but expansive.
Should I order it from local auto shop to save the shipping.
Is it easy to install the bumper? or I should bring it to auto body shop?

Re: How should I fix my bumper?

Are you somewhat mechanically inclined? If so front bumper removal should be easy. eBay will also have them for cheaper than any shop you go to, so if that's too expensive I would save some more money.

Re: How should I fix my bumper?

Why are you in need of a new bumper? and what kind are you looking for (JDM or USDM)?
generally, the bumpers on ebay are JDM, they DO NOT have the sidemarkers whereas the USDM bumpers HAVE the sidemarker holes. The JDM bumpers are pretty expensive (3-6 hundred). It is very easy to install the front bumber, maybe 30 minutes. do it yourself, save some money, because a new one is already going to cost you.

Re: How should I fix my bumper?

Yeah I see you are from NY. You can meet up with us and we can help you put on the bumper. From your profile pic your bumper looks fine. Why are you changing it? Are you going to paint it first as well? Welcome to PZ by the way.

Also I'll ask the NY luders if they know someone with a front Bumper. Check out all for sale threads on here: http://www.preludezone.com/5th-gen-97-01/ and prelude Power as well: http://www.preludepower.com/forums/f...play.php?f=278 Craigslist too. Or create a WTB thread. Hope this helps

Don't feel like getting holding my arm up all day when you guys keep calling me asking "Who's who phone number?, where is the meet up spot?, and my favorite, who's there already?" LOL Also they bump up the ticket price for being caught driving while talking on the phone.

Re: How should I fix my bumper?

Welcome to the site, careful with some aftermarket parts. Some just don't fit right compared to ur oem bumper. It's easy to do so rake every ones advice, follow a write up and save some money.
