Okay well while looking at my car the other day I decided that it sat too low. Well today I got around to fixing that problem.

How does she look?


Too bad I can't drive around with these though


Anyways the real project today was the bumper covers and headlights.

Dropped the front off


After transferring the foglights, putting the SSEi one on the car, then taking it off because I forgot to put the foam in . Here'* the cover mounted. Headlights will be going on in a bit after the silicone finishes drying.


Also found out to put an SLE/SSEi cover on an SE you also need a splash guard. My SE one is currently shoved up in and zip tied in place (blind rivets wouldn't stay in place) until I can order one. Not too bad though since the splash guard had zip ties on it already from the previous owners

Bright enough?

I really like that style of bumper over the newer styles.

Do you have the molding for the sides as well. Looks good!!!

There was a guy here that did the same thing and traded it to a dealer......idiot ford dealer wanted SSEi money when it was only a SE. I stopped to look at it and laughed.

Don't have the moldings yet. They're on the future plans.

Just got the headlights on. Pics in first post. Led strips aren't wired up yet. On list to do for tomorrow. More pics will come of everything completed in better light. By the time I finished with the front cover, as you can tell by the pics, it had started to get dark out.

I'm probably going to whack you one in May. You're suppose to tell me these things when I'm talking to ya on the phone. No the screws aren't there because I didn't know they were suppose to go on. I assume I can just take the two out of the bottom of the SE foam and use them right?
