best place to ask this question.. is there any difference between the base/touring/sport DRL (mounted vertically), and the nismo DRL (mounted horizontally)?

looking at doing the conversion and wondering if it's possible to use the DRL's that already came on the 2016 sport.

thanks!

Default Question

To those that have done the conversion roughly how much to have it painted? Picked up my bumper from Z1 yesterday! I'll start getting estimates this week, but want to have an idea of what to expect.

I got mine painted exactly like the OEM one (Mag Black for the main body, Dark Metallic Gunmetal for the middle fin piece and the surrounding red accent pieces, and matte black for the front grille because I filled in the two holes where the Nismo emblem is located for $550.)

Okay thanks! I guess that's not too bad considering the detail involved in painting it like OEM. I might just have all of the pieces that are supposed to be gunmetal and the grille painted a semi-gloss black. I'm planning to fill in the holes as well.

Checking with those who installed the rear bumper or those who know. Is there a need to fabricate a bracket for the rear? Thanks.

You will need:
Bumper Cover
New Splash shields
Tow hook cover (5 day backorder)
4th brakelight (butt plug cover - re-used my oem)
New center lower rear brace.

You can reuse all of your hardware and you will need to reuse license plate clips and license plate lamp assembly.
Hope this answers your question.
