Who has used certifit for an 05 frontend conv.

Stuff is really cheap. I could probably do the bumper, grill, headlights and header panel from under 800 bucks if I went that way.

How does the stuff fit?

Generally pretty good. Thats where the majority of body shops get their stuff unless you specifically request OEM parts

I was wondering the same thing, I had added up all the parts and i think it was in the $5-600 range. I was just hesitant because I didn't want to buy junk and end up replacing it. Anybody have experience with they're chrome in northeastern weather? Does it end up all flaking off?

that was the only thing I DIDN'T buy from them and I used car-part.com, it's the textured right now, trying to find the red from the factory to get it in the smooth finish.....I bought a complete bumper from car-part for 200 and it came with 2 upper pads....I sold one, used mine and got rid of the painted one.....the lower chrome is a ford piece but I looked at certifits while I was there and it's VERY nice quality. when I bought my stuff last april it cost me 256.95 out the door for the grille, header panel, headlights, bumper brackets..I used the addison illinois shop as well, very nice people to deal with, they let you open everything and if you're interested in something else they will let you look over it until you're happy.
