Unknown front bumper

Hey guys, so my 01 SE came with a body kit when I bought it off the lot. It was supposed to be the same one as was on the car already and cost an additional $200 so I thought "Hell why not. A backup never hurts eh?" (yeah I'm Canadian). SO I bought it and the front bumper seemed decent, needs some paint but hell so does the whole car so idc, it "blends".
Anyways, I looked at the bumper when I got it into my shop and noticed that it's slightly different than the one I already have on the Lude. It has a cutout for the stacked fogs/turn signals where as the one on mine just has a cutout for a single fog/DRL and the signals are a little dinky light thing way bellow the fog/DRL.
Anyways I'm having trouble identifying the bumper plus, I need to know how the lights fit into it, it seems that the fog lights that came with the car, sit on the lower part of the cutout and theres room on top for something, now if I'm correct (probably not since I know very little of preludes, especially stock ones since mine came with a body kit) the fog light should be on top and the signal on the bottom of the cutout in the bumper. I have reference photos so don't worry, if I'm making no sense with my description then you can always check them out. Bottom line here, I'm hoping I can find out who makes the bumper, what the light setup is for the bumper, plus, will I be able to buy the stacked lights you see on ebay (idc if its ebay) and put them in.

And how the fog sits in the bumper


Lastly, the bumper I had before

The turn signal being the little light near the bottom of the bumper

Thanks guys, any help is much appreciated!

Re: Unknown front bumper

assuming the new bumper you have is like the mugen type bumper with a little modification on the bottom. and some people do on those replicas they fabricate the mounting for fog lights and turn signal lights

and you may need to buy the OEM style turn signal lights

Thanks man, turns out I just needed to do a little bit more research on the car to find that the fogs are in fact supposed to rest below the turn signals. I will need to buy the OEM signal lights like you said though. I think I'll give hondapartsnow a shot.
