I know its hard to see in this pic, but the bumper cover right under the headlight bulges up a bit and then goes back down, is there any way to fix this? I bought the bumper like this and I do still have the bumper reinforcement in place.

I dunno if this would work, or if it's even recommended, But what would Heating it up and Try forming it in place do? You think it'll work? lol


Side-Note: I seen a For-Sale thread on SoCalEvo.net for a 90 Talon.


You guys getting rid of it? I think it was your bro who posted it? If not, Then Whoops lol

I've seen a few local that have that same problem. You may just have to get a new bumper, but I dont know if a new one will do the same.

Yeah, were actually parting it out so we can try and get more money that way. I think I'm going to try and use a hair dryer to heat it up and push it down. Yes, the bumper is new, it came like that, so eh.

You can make a bracket to put under it and hold it up.

I think there is a sticky on it here... something about 2g bumper sag.

Its not so much about the sag, I need to fix the part that is bulging up, like I need to push it down or something, and I have oem lights, so that can't be the problem.

^Just thought he may want to go in 'stages' with heat. Just in case a little heat is all he needs, that way he doesn't melt the bumper on his first try....

i used a heat gun to straigten out a rear bumper wave... slow and sure, do not melt/bubble the material and do it from the inside!
