Hell, I should just sell him mine. I'd like to go 01+. What's the price on them?

I've been viewing the ebay stuff that Dopple linked me to for all of the tupperware. They have an 01 kit with the 01 lower but no price on an 01 bumper cover.

lets say IF i wanted to sell it, would it be easier with the original NB1 bumper/headlights? Do most buyers want everything stock looking?

I already have the fogs, lip, and headlights.

an NB2 front end would take me a while to find and I need to have this thing done already.

I was originally looking for a $1k NA beater but couldn't pass this up for $1,600.

So I'm not sure, but I will DD it for a few months and find out. I can always do an NB2 swap later If I decide to keep it.

Bump for you to go NB2.

18psi, I have everything shipping today to install the NB2 bumper on my '99 except the little slide dealies under the fender & behind headlights. I couldn't find their part number & don't think they are in the 01-05 bumper diagram but somewhere else when searching online parts lists.

The NB1 ball joint types won't work correct?

Hope this can help O.P. if he converts.

Can get pic if really interested as the tub is out back in the trees and there's a lot of snow here.

I'd consider letting my black bumper cover go from my V8 car. It's intact - no cracks or major scrapes. Clear coat is peeling and some of the typical scrapes under the front lip. I've pretty much decided to go 01+ but haven't gotten a price on 01+ bumper cover and lights yet.

Throw some offers at me and I'll consider them as this is a WTB ad, not a WTS.

Here's what I'm talking about..



If you have the time, please take a few pictures of them and PM them to me. I need to see it (esp the bumper) before I start throwing you offers.

Yeah I have that part. Will take pics this weekend. I can shoot the bumper cover anytime as the car is in the shop but it's too dark to shoot the bumper support after work as it is outside.

PM me your email address.
