PostSubject: origin s14 body kit    Sun May 29, 2011 10:46 am

I'm having trouble putting my front bumper on my car. It seems like its alittle too wide if I line up one side then the other side is off by at least 2 inches. I tried bolting up one side and then pushing in the other side but its fiber glass so iam afraid to break it.

Does anyone have any ideas am I doing something wrong?

nope sounds right... thats what most fiberglass kits are like... had the same problem with my old 200sx bodykit... u can fill it with some hairs and try sanding it down but if u dont have alot of bodywork/fiberglass experience, i would just take it to a shop... its gonna cost you though....lol

That's what I was thinking but it has the little area to bolt up the jdm turn signals so why would it be a zenki front end with them blinkers? Are zenki fenders wider then kouki?

It's fiber glass, if you want it on you should get a shop to fit it. Is it a genuine origin? Might have to consider that because knock offs tend to have fitment problems.

It's a knock off I'm sure and I know they do have filament problems but this is way off I don't really like body kits so ill probably sell it. I just wanted to see what it would look like on the car.Sad

Best way to fit it is cutting it right down the middle. Bolt up the two sides and trim off the excess material between the two. Then fix it up with your own fiberglass work, if you know how.

i know this is an old thread. But i feel like bumping it to show you how to fix your problem "the easy way."

all you have to do, take off you oem metal bumper support. And cut knotches where the bolt holes are. Then slide it in until your bumper isnt rubbing it, and mounted flush with your fenders. Worked on my s13 hatch, and on my buddies zenki s14. NO MODIFICATION TO FIBERGLASS NEEDED (unless its just a crappy bumper to start with).
