instead of trying to strip my front cover and prep it for paint , I’m looking at the replacement covers. My current one is not factory so nothing will be lost there . Anyone try one? Wasn’t sure if they were worth it, or if I should find a clean original paint factory one.

Mine has chipping paint from a bad paint job so it’s gotta go


Lmr is 200 ish after discounts

just a standard aftermarket cover right? i got one circa 2006ish, fit seems ok (body shop put it on after a wreck) but looking at it close you can tell its aftermarket. trying to find a good pic of it, too many folders on my pc.....

LMR is supposed to be ford OE tooling with correct stampings and logos and stuff

Is your front bumper damaged beyond the paint?

If not, I had a real good experience with a local media blaster on stripping mine. 50 bucks and it was down to the e-coat.

You can save a few bucks that way.

I’ll double check to see if mine is aftermarket. But I’m gonna check for a good condition factor bumper locally first.

the rear is, the front as far as i can tell is ordinary aftermarket.
Maybe its just the LX one then cuz i plan on doing mine over the winter, the one on it is a no name. Front plate is going bye bye .

I want to find another GT bumper for mine. Was going to go LMR. Maybe craigslist is the way to go.

I’m amazed at how how it is to find a clean factory gt bumper. Found one and the guy wants $550. So at this point my options are either buy a used factory one and have it stripped, or aftermarket.

My current one is
Aftermarket and needs stripped, so to the chopping block it goes.
