GD Jdm type S bumpers info

I need some info on running the jdm bumpers on my US model GD fit.
Exactly what do I need to use the jdm type S front bumper are the fenders the same as US models and the head lights. And do any one have a link on getting a set shipped

i have this done to my car...you need the following...
Front.
Headlights, fenders, rebar (if you wanna run the tow hook you need jdm rebar or you can just get it modified by a welder or body shop) Bumper, Hood and lastly you must relocate the hood latch.

Back.
shorten rebar, bumper.

i got all my parts off of ebay.

I have some photos of the process in the thread above when I did my swap.

Just another thought regarding the hood - if you buy an aftermarket hood like J's Racing or from another company, you could always just skip relocating the hood latch and run hood pins instead.

how much of a pain was moving the latch? would it be worth finding a JDM upper rad support as well?

Dang Jawa your car looks sick man definitely a fan i just got the swap done on my car as well. I had a body shop do it but i kind of wish i was able to do it myself (i should have) cuz some of the fab they did I'm not so happy about. either way though looks definitely nice good stuff. Where did you get your back bumper? i only have my front end done and also i checked out your instagram are you also a chef man?

rebar? what are you talking about? in place of the 5 mile per hour bumper perhaps? I have a jdm bumper as well I plan to install but I plan to adapt "if possible" the bumper doing fiber glass mods at least I hope to. I would like to see your cars front end to see the differences you had to make.
