    97 Talon Front Bumper on a 95 Talon

    Well, Helix has the worst luck *ever* this year, and he's in the body shop again. This time the front bumper cover needs to be replaced (by insurance). I'd like to get a bit more out of my front mount and a meaner looking DSM by going to the 97+ front bumper. Now I know I've seen nothing is necessary to swap besides bumpers to change the yrs for the Talons....unlike the eclipses where you have to swap the headlights. But of course the body shop retard is saying the 97 won't fit on the 95. I'd like to put my mind at ease by reading a few threads of successful swaps. Does anyone know where any are by chance? Or done it themselves? Any custom work invovled?

    Bah! I just got bad news! The autobody shop called me back and told me the reason their tech said the 97 front bumper won't fit is Mitsubishi took over the Eagle division cuz Eagle doesn't exist any more and they only now distribute MITSUBISHI front bumpers. No more Talons =( So I gave the body shop guy www.wholesalebumpers.com address and he's gonna look into reconditioned ones. Then the f*ckers wanted to charge $700 for removing the rear glass, removing the rear spoiler, filling in the holes, repainting it all, and replacing the glass (and the glass might break). So F that. If anyone sees a Black hatch in great condition in a junk yard with no spoiler...let me know, I want one =)
