Hello,


I recently purchased a G8 GT and the front bumper cover is missing. I have seen the GXP conversion and GT install threads through search but it doesn't help me completely. I am missing everything related to the front bumper cover which would include the lower plastic and filler between the bumper and cover, grills, fog lights, and hardware.


Would anyone happen to have a Bill of Material for the bumper cover? I found the attached diagram on ebay. But it doesn't help with regards to part numbers and part name.


Any assistance will be great.

Just finished my conversion from gt nose to gxp and lower difusser ,fog covers and rubber insert on botton of bumper are the only difference in gt and gxp the pontiac emblem has 3 post's for alignment and has sticky tape to hold on but also show's push on retaining nuts, so i added all 3 just to make sure it never comes off , i did everything new including headlights but used original side marker lights. There's also a GM Performance Division emblem on top side of bumper under hood i put on. I tried a set of HID fog light's with alum housing and glass lenses but the fittment was not good, they were from Mendozamtrsports so beware of those all in all paid only 300 for bumper cover, paint, parts aby install at local body shop they let me help do cost about 1300 dollars and love results and look

Do you know if there is a diagram that calls out the factory hardware for mounting the bumper cover and accessories?

Thanks

Got kinda lucky while looking for gt nose my brother saw one on Craigslist offered as gt nose and when i looked, it was actually a gxp cover in a gt part# box when i called the guy, he still had it but a guy in Texas wanted it, but he would have to ship it, i told him i had 300 if the other guy fell through. He was in okc(shipping must be $$$$)and im in tulsa I'll come and get now he said ok and hung up, i thought sh** i was too late finished the day cussing myself for procrastinating, oh well , about 6:00 that night he called me back and said come and get if i still wanted it well here i come, hour and half later i was looking at in person it was a gxp oem # in a gt box we talked a while about selling his g8gt 4 yrs earlier and was srry he did but was getting rid of what he had, also gave me a tie rod end and off i went !!! Srry for long story but i felt lucky cause i had a small budget. While looking i found a few on Google search using oem part # for around 600 just not sure if it's true oem, try local gmc dealer should be no shipping to pay there good luck, keep is up to date though

Mine needs painted too. In fact, I wanted to buy the GXP cover and paint it plus the hood. Such an expensive "mod" lol.
