    Will the coupe front bumpers from body kits mount on the sedan? If so how much work is involved and obviously I know I need the coupe hood like if I used the oem coupe bumper.

    There is more work involved with getting a body kit bumper to fit right, than just swapping an 01-02 OEM/OE bumper. Glad you are getting the coupe hood to prevent the gap.

    fiberglass kits never fit right there is a lot of prep and finishing work to get it to look nice most fiberglass kits have no mount holes drilled so u must do it your self and then there is the fact its FIBERGLASS!! Doing a coupe swap is all bolt on then find a lip and whamo! looks dope.
