is there some part you are confused about?

I did mine and it was really easy. Everything just snaps together. Post your question of what you dont' know how to do and I will try to answer it or I am sure that someone might get to it before me. If you do a search you will find all sorts of info on the bumper.

I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about

It is black right? Has a bunch of inserts on it to be clipped into? If that is the piece then it snaps in behind the mesh grill. Just match it up because all of the inserts match to the clips. Just work that thing on there. Takes a little pressure but all that it really is is a support bracket. Let me know if it is something different you are talking about.

thats the piece I was talking about

basically it just snaps in behind the mesh. Just snap the mesh in and then snap that thing behind it. Once you get it on there then you will see how it fits. You just have to put it on there to where all of the little inserts will fit into the clips.

question: are you supposed to put the mesh grill on before you install the bumper on the car? or do you need to get behind the mesh part to screw stuff in during the install?

Yea how much did you guys pay for the full kit, and how much did it cost to paint and install it. (I know i know this has been mentioned a million times, but could you list the exact part numbers needed, becuase i have seen many differen't parts told by different people. Thanks.)
