Default Help! Question about 05-09 Eleanor Gen 1 front bumper

Hey guys and gals. This is my first post, so bear with me. Well, I recently purchased what is now my '05 GT just a few weeks ago [ LOVING it btw ]. But I need to replace the front bumper and found the "Eleanor Gen 1" front bumper to be very attractive. According to the site I'm looking at, mrbodykit.com (I've always purchased products from americanmuscle.com in the past) they have them in stock (ammuscle only has the FULL eleanor kit). I made sure the bumper itself is constructed out of urethane & not fiberglass..but that's not what I'm worried about.

Oh, and here's the link to the bumper:
http://www.mrbodykit.com/index.php?m...oducts_id=2567

However, my main question before I buy it is, where could I find a lower billet grille for it that would fit? The product description notes that "Does not include lower grille or fog light sets" but that "We do have upper grilles available."

Although I was able to find a lower grill in which I think would fit the bumper where the lower fog lights are supposed to be installed. That link is here (same website):
http://www.mrbodykit.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=878

Sooo...my only concern is if this will fit or not. What do y'all think? Any advice? &btw I appreciate any feedback that I receive. Thanks again.

Check this ads out, it my
Previous car, if it the Same
Bumper you are looking it,
This grill wont fit at all, id check
on cervini website for a lower grill,
maybe ebay, i had a eleanor conversion
and the lower front grill is way smaller then what you posted. Good luck, it a mean look bumper, but seems like there is two sort of
Bumper, either way the shape of the grill doesnt look
Like it would fit.

If I were you I get a californa special front bumper it lines up with stock side skirts better, if you do get the Eleanor front bumper you should buy the whole body kit side skirts and rear. That way nothing looks off when you look at it from different angles it is a good looking front bumper just doesn't look right if the whole kits not on IMO. Have fun with it thought and post update pictures.
