Total sum for the parts -way under 3 bills. Still have to get the rear bumper reinforcement, but I have one located -exchange for the original cornering lights from my 95 (also happens to be the body shop that painted my trunk lid and spoiler).

I haven't gotten the tips yet -waiting until I get the Borla XS muffler in April. The place that sells them is called Alex Exhaust/ Pitcher Auto Performance in Alexandria, MN -their phone # is 320-763-5574. Tell them you are a BC member and that the guy with all the Bonneville'* directed you there. Also, make sure you tell them the tips are the Stainless Steel oval/resonator tips like I had installed on my gold 1998 Bonneville SSE. I was drooling over those tips again 2 weeks ago when I had my 3" exhaust installed (manifold to muffler).

You doing the side cladding so the lines match? And the rockers?
Grille won't contact the bumper as the grille sits back abit behind the bumper (which v'* out -there is a 96-99 SSEi in town with a 92-93 crosshare grille which I have pictures of somewhere here on pc -will dig them up).
Definitely will be doing the door, fender and rocker cladding as the car would look extremely like a ricer without it -you know the Civic with the bumpers but no side ground effects. Without the rocker mouldings and door/fender cladding there'll be like empty space.
I would have gotten that stuff too but the yard didn't want to seperate the cladding from the doors or the rocker mouldings either. I'm looking on car-part to see what'* out there, or see if Gordy'* gonna use the cladding off my old 97 SSE parts car (I believe he will use them as he was definitely excited to get them from me).
