New guy with a question
Monday, February 22, 2016 9:23 AM
I have a 2004 LS Sport Cavalier. My daughter smashed the front end and I need a front bumper cover with the fog light holes. I am having difficulty finding an aftermarket front cover. My question is: Will I be able to use an aftermarket cover without the fog light holes and install the existing fog lights by removing the plastic from the openings? Or will I have to abandon the fog lights? I don't necessarily care, I just want to make sure the aftermarket cover will bolt on using the existing holes. Any input is appreciated. Thanks

U can use any 03-05 bumper. Fogs would be optional if u find a way to mount them to a non fog light bumper. In my opinion the stock bumper looks better then any aftermarket bumper for these years

I would suggest if you cannot find anything online my tip next.Here in my area are some junkyards that soley remove parts themselves to sell to body shops and the public.These junkyards do (NOT) let customers remove parts.Next step I went to this said business and they have full access to buying auto body parts and not to costly to fit any car and to the letter.Granted these businesses do not exist in every town,city so it might be tough to find in your area.I have not personally researched into any 3rd parts to see what is available that is OEM specific.Ironically you can check out some part sites that I will list next and have shipped to your door over going thru the GM dealer.

http://www.gmpartsdirect.com The online sites tend to be lower cost maybe(shipping might bite).I seriously would just check the dealer as it might be more $$ cheaper than getting a used bumper all goofed up or marked up and rubbed,and crappy fit.Plus getting paint done to match is no cheap job.If I find something I will post it later.
