Finally here you go...not bad for a NEW PART....$210 shipped as opposed to paying nearly $500 bucks shipped for a used JDM one. That's just me.

thanks for the side pic, but I'm trying to see to whole side profile. ( I just hate kits the tend to be lower than the rest of the car.)

A pic like this or something close.

I'll get some more pics soon. If that is your car, it looks great. I can tell you just from looking at the bumper that it is lower than the rest of the other panels so it probably wouldn't suit you. There are other parts to the body kit, but unless something else happened to 76 I wouldn't bother with it.

Haha that's not my Galant, is not even the same color as mine. Anyway is a pic of what I was talking about. Note how the front bumper sits like a inch lower than the side skirts.

Quoting blkchr91:









Could you not find a stock USDM rear bumper for the car? That thing doesn't look right at all.

I actually don't think that with a back bumper it is as much of an issue as with the front. I'd actually be interested in a full side profile shot as well. I do think as it stands it looks a little bit too wide at the back but it really isn't a bad looking bumper by all accounts.

I admit like most on this forum that this car does not lend itself to extravagant body kits, but looking at that makes me wonder if some tastefully done flares with wider wheels and a similar front bumper might look quite good as long as the styling remained close to that of the OEM JDM/AMG front bumper.



Getting old sucks ... but it sure beats the alternative !!!

I see what you mean, I guess you are scarred.

I don't like it because it deletes the chrome strip and doesn't really look like it belongs on a VR4, but it's nice to see something different than the usual usdm/jdm ones.

I hated the chrome strip and it's peeling top clear layer (at least on mine). I think that a BG looks good with chrome personally.

Thanks for all of the thoughts good and bad.
