The bumper is a little too much for my tastes, maybe a more cut back it would be okay, but I think it looks odd. Second on my car there is a little plastic guard (curb feeler?) piece that is on the front, I think that is what you are missing

You are missing the lower deflector:

The deflector'* intended purpose is to deflect air to the lower portion of the radiator.

OK thanks to all. I see what Im missing, on my way to the junker. & about the bumper, Im not a 100% satisfied with it so I think Ill keep on the brainstorming. (if anyone has any cool ideas on the bumper, let me hear them.)

looks cool, I always wanted to do the exact same thing with my car, But I'd say the middle section has to come forward 1"-1.5"

I like that Idea actually!
And if I didn't I'm sure what ever you do you can pull it off right

My original deflector was broken when I started driving the car, eventually I replaced and and went on to brake the replacement off the tabs...now I don't run it. I'd like to find something else to put there though. I need to get into the firberglassing world, it'* pretty cool to be able to make almost anything

I think if you didn't have the gap in the middle missing and it didn't come out as far it would look good. Just a simple lip.
