I would drill all the holes and what not before you get it painted. That way you don't have to worry about damaging the paint. Take off the stock bumper and look at the differences betwean the Tsunami and your stock bumper. Then just modify your Tsunami bumper to be exactly like your stock bumper. Make sure that everything is the same! Measure everything out perfectly. Mate the grill up to the Tsunami bumper to make the holes for the grill. Make sure to cut out a notch in the center of the bumper under the grill just like the stock bumper. This will help with flexing and fitting. Then make sure you prepare the Tsunami bumper for painting. Here is what you do: Painting Instructions

I think that's all the advise I can give you. Just remember to measure twice before you cut/drill. You can always measure as many times as you'de like to, but after the cutting/drilling there is no going back.

They didn't send you screws? They sent me screws. You need 22 screws I think? They only sent me 20. I think they got confused and sent me the amount for the T2000 bumber. Anyway, get ones that are fairly deep. 3/4" should do. They also need to have fairly large threads. Widely spaced and deep threads will ensure that they grab a hold of the urethane. You need to pre-drill the holes in back in these tabs that stick out. You'll see them when you get the bumper back. Just make sure you use a drill that's smaller than the screw diameter. That's it. I'de get stainless steel, or zinc plated, or brass. Anything that doesn't rust.

the screws go thru the clips to provide a larger way to hold the speed grill on! Consider it like a washer for a bolt! And im assuming that the 2 peices of aluminum is to hold the bottom of the bumper to the lower radiator support?

That's what they're for pimpdakota. I'm not sure if I know what you mean by lower radiator support? Are there stock holes there that you can use? My body shop drilled new ones that go through two or three layers of metal and a layer of plastic (more sturdy that way). I also replaced those crappy pieces of aluminum with some 1.25"x.25" thick aluminum that I made holes in and polished to a mirror shine (you can get some at Home Depot).

well, my tsunami bumper will be here in 7 days, i hope i'm able to put it on as easy as ome of you fellas seem to have(or was that a misconception) once i get it on, will they paint it while it's on or take it off again? what's the rough install if i've never done this before, but i'm pretty handy and did all my other mods myself?

CivicHX01: I want to see what kind of brackets you have under the headlights. Definately post pics of that.

Maverick: Yeah, it's easy enough. It has to be taken off to be painted.

alienmonkey: Fit where? There is no location that is like the OEM one on the Tsunami for OEM foglights. That's why I'm getting aftermarket ones. I have an OEM switch though. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]
