Prob installing wrong man :dontknow:

those bumpers are picky
yea thats what i thought! u think it would be better for two people to install? and i dont know what i could be doing wrong u think it would matter because the OEM rear bumer is from another rsx that maybe there was a slight difference??? lol i dont know probably not because every RSX is made the same way!!!! i need to get some pics up and show u guys!

bump thanks for your help fade2black! i figured what i did wrong was the 5 hooks on the bracket under the tailight i didnt push the bumper clips in between them i just pushd them on top making the bumper fit unproperly so if u push the bumper clips in between the 5 bracket hooks then the bumper should fit perfect! thanks for your help yippy!!!
