So now I have a fiberglass bumper & would like to fill the hole for the "H". How do I go about doing that?

After that, what needs to be done to prepare it for primer? Body filler .. sanding .. & so on? Test fit before paint? Do you paint the bumper on the car or no? And the coatings are primer, base coat, midcoat, clear? Wet sanding?

Thanks for any help .. I'm not doing it myself .. but I want to know what my painter should be doing.

So this will be really random but would you mind measuring the dimensions of your grill when you take it off?

have you tried fitting that bumper yet?

i would do that first before anything else

from the looks of it, the headlight area looks weird on the bumper you bought, doesnt seem pointy enough for the 05-06 headlights.

test fit it

it looks like the guy made a mold from a 02-04 bumper but had filled the "dips" in so it became a 05-06

great observation. looks like TS got played. bought an 02-04 bumper with gaps under headlights filled.
