Default GT/CS front bumper kit install HELP!!

I got the complete front bumper kit from LMS, here it is:

http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...ont-Bumper-Kit

I need help on what hardware to use to attach the bottom "filler" lip to the bumper. This attaches to the splash shield. Anyone who has done this installation or has a CS could you shoot a pic of the bottom of the bumper where it mounts to the splash shield? I am trying to do this install tomorrow so any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Nope, just got my kit back from the body shop. Was just wondering how it all went together. I think I have figured it out, but would love a photo of the bottom of a GT/CS

Well, I have no photos but, I do have experience. What I would tell you is three screws where it meets the car at the wheel well, three screws to the center of the splash shield (like a triangle.. two in line in the rear and one front and center).. one half way on each side of that .. meaning, half way between center and end.. and, for good measure, some good double sided 3m tape for adhesion. Do NOT make one big tape line... if its a daily driver, allow spaces in between so that rain or water can properly drain to the gaps and go away. And use SS screws if u can so they dont rust out.

Take a picture of the section you are concerned with and Im sure GT CS guys will chime in with similar photos of theirs showing the hardware.

The kit doesn't provide the plastic push on clips necessary to attach the filler panel to the bumper... about 6 of them if I remember well.
The 4 little screws that connected the factory lower bumper (in the middle) and the lower radiator shield are now connected to that filler panel since the CS bumper protrudes outward.

All you need is those plastic clips and figure out how the filler goes in...
You kinda have to shove it inside the bumper so you can line up the holes.
Sorry no pic.

Found a PDF online on how to install it. Got it on today, along with the AM Eleanor grille. Very happy with the look. Will post pics tomorrow.
