im just looking at some VZ SS front bumpers on ebay, and i decided i want to put one on my executive. just a few questions

can it be a do it yourself kind of job? like will it be easy fitting and what not? a mate said there could be some troubles of alignment and that.

and paint, how much would paint be? colour is Martini Mica

paint will need to be done by a good painter, as you can run into problems with metallics, ie streaks, blotches etc,

yes you can fit it yourself quite easily, there is a thread that is stickied at the top of this forums so i wont go into detail

it all takes time, and cost money,

was just over at a mates place today. we just removed my original bumper to see if the ss bumper fits, and good news for me, it does fit! so we changed the bumpers back over.

hopefully it will be looking smick once its painted, the foggies are fitted and everything.

Did you buy genuine fog lamps or non genuine as i got non genuine and the bracket does not fit the bumper.

I believe the lights fit but you have to use vz brackets for them.

Oooo. Good point.
Have a look under the car. You might be lucky and have the wiring there for fog lights.
All you will need in that case is the light switch that pulls out for fog lights and the relay under the bonnet.

Happy days.
