I am currently putting on my front Bomex bumper (same one for the F&F) and i have the Greddy 3-Row FMIC, i just want to know whether you guys have had problems putting the Bomex front on, did the IC Core get in the way, if so what did you guys do to get around it.

Thanks

You will have to cut the bumper for 3-row and you will have to trim the bumper crash bar on the ends to clear the fog light holes.

Not hard to do either of these.

I didnt want to mess with it until i asked you guys, how hard is it to cut through the fiberglass, what did you guys use, do you have to keep it wet while you cut so that fiberglass fragments dont fly everywhere.

i hope you dont have to cut too much off, i just dont want to ruin the bomex bumper lines, you only get one shot at this.

I had to cut the inside. Can't remember how much, but it completely took the Bomex sticker. The bodyman used masking tape where it needed to be cut. It made the cut nicer without splinters. They used a dremel type of tool, but bigger.

Did you install the bumper yourself or did you have your bodyshop do the work.

wats so rice about the bomex kit.. i love it. really shows off the fmic without going nuts... but hey just my opinion

Agreed, i think it looks really good, one of my favorites, i think my second choice would be the Do Luck front bumper, that also show of the FMIC really well.

Did you guys have a little bit of the bumper stick out on the sides, right behind the headlights towards the bottom side of the fenders. Cause i am experiencing this right now.
