So I ran across a deal that sounded too good to be true on CL . I found a supposedly new never seen a bolt / screw / clip bumper cover aka nose for my TA.
The guy tells me he wants $150 for it so I wasnt expecting much because I have seen these sell on ebay for 300 - 400 scratched up.
I mentioned it to chicken plucker he said jump on it . I emailed the guy back mentioned I was looking for a headliner as well , suprisingly he says he'll throw one in for the 150.

I find out last night < sunday > that the headliner isnt happening he says his dad sold it ....yet today when I get there it's in the car ....nutty huh?

Anywho he has the bumper cover/ nose ( pictures are below ) so naturally I see if I can possibly get it for even less due to the headliner not being involved ....the only scratch is also shown ..........I got it for $120.

It'll probably go on the car in a week or so maybe two . I have a pair of doors to put on first so they are a higher priority pictures are on one of the ky threads . They also came from CL.

I do have a question though , this bumper cover is in black primer now do I have to add more primer before putting it on the car or is it good as is?
