I recently just bought a rep racing dynamics rear bumper for a coupe, and test fitted it to see how close it would be to fit it. unfortunately, the bumper seems way too wide, Ill take pictures of it this weekend to show you guys how far off it is, just want to know what would have to be done to get it to fit. Its got like a 4 inch gap between the body and the bumper on one side with the other side lined up correctly against the body. Also, would it be a good idea to take the mounting brackets off my OEM bumper and attach them to the fiber glass one? please help me out, me and my cousin are stumped right now :ben:

you would have to cut it in half, remove about 3 & 1/2 inches off of it and remold it with "more fiberglass".. then sand it down and smoothen it out. at least 7 hours of body shop labor at $44/hr.

any chance of returning it?

Make sure to install the support bracket before test fitting.

It's probably just a matter of time before the fiberglass breaks and looks like crap. So you might consider returning it.
