I was just wondering what exactly the bumper guard cushions are and if i even need them?
Are the Park Lamps the front turn signals?


Also the lower grill (grey) area is that the filler panel? Should i get a metal one or plastic one?

You don't need the bumper gaurds. The cousions are thebblack rubber pieces on front of the metal gaurd. The front parking lamps
Are the from turnsignals. The gray piece is the filler panel, I don't think a metal one is produced.

Do i need to buy the plastic and the metal reinforcements?
If your talking about the black car its not mine, it was at a car show. I just used it as a reference. I thought the bumper cushions might have been to cushion between the bumper and body. I agree, the bumper looks better without the gaurds.

Thanks Pat

That looks like the piece that goes under the plastic panel....yes. The plastic panel was still available from GM last year.

Pat that is the reinforcement piece in your pic, there is a plastic piece that covers that, it is available at your local GM dealer or through the aftermarket. GM uses the original mold, but different plastic, I was surprised it was identical to my original. They also get paint Argent silver from the factory.
