Question 2002 Hood Protector Fit 2004?

Hi, I just recently purchased a 2004 Civic Coupe. I thinking of purchasing a Saddleman hood protector (demi bra) from JC Whitney. However, the listings only go up thru 2002. I know JC Whitney is sometimes slow at updating their listings to newer years so the question is this: Are the hoods on 2002 vs 2004 the same and will the hood protector listed for 2002 fit?

Many thanks.

Not sure about your question but why not just get a hood deflector instead? It looks a lot better then an unsightly bra in my opinion and it dosn't leave that weird "uncleaned" spot when you take it off.

heres a pic of it (don't mind the yellow stuff. My friend decided to "fancy up" the civic with a lil mustard)

I agree, don't get any kind of a bra, just get a deflector, underneath the bra is just left so gross and dirty when you take it off.

I can appreciate what you guys are telling me about a bra. I've had them on other vehicles and you have to make a point of removing it every so often to clean under it. As long as that's done on a regular basis I've encountered no problems.

A hood deflector is certainly an option and I currently have one of my truck. And I guess it's a matter of taste. I would prefer a bra on the Civic rather than a hood deflector. So I'm still wondering if the 2002 would fit.

Won't fit , because 2004 Front bumper is totally different than 01-03 bumpers.

OK, But I'm interested in a "demi bra" which fits on the hood ONLY. Is the hood the same?

cambo has a spectacular aura aboutcambo has a spectacular aura about
no the hood is not the same. The hood, bumper, fenders, and headlights are all different on the 04 compared to the 01-03 civics.
