took a bit of a risk with ordering this bumper and the worst part was the wait since my car was damaged and in the shop since end of June. So I missed the whole summer and many track days bleh. After all the delays finally got the bumper last Friday the 10th and working on fitting it in. Definitely not an easy job and a lot of things that I already dislike and almost wish I went for the 981 GT4 bumper replica instead that has been done many times with great results.

However I want to show my progress and keep you guys posted of the final results later next week! Luckily the body shop is very patient and working with me and I think it will end up looking great haha.

This is a aftermarket kit for 981 guys. Not a 718 OEM bumper. It’s a conversion. My body shop taking extra care of it to make the body lines and fit the best possible. Should be completed next week! I have had the car wrapped so long too and first time seeing it with black accents and wheels in agate gray and actually liking it.

I know this is an old thread and AlpineTrader07 hasn't been here in a long time, but does anyone have any more information on this kit? This is the only place on the internet I can find talking about it. Looking at the blending of the bodywork, I keep wondering if maybe this isn't actually designed for the 981 and a talented body shop was just able to make it work. I've seen some 718 bumpers mislabeled as 981 bumpers.
