October 23, 2006If anyone is considering using the new 2006 PTeazer front facsia - 2 quick technical notes. 1) Although they call it a "bumperette" fascia, it does not have the indent for chrome trimtrim, and to me looks more like the previous "smoothie" version. Crystal at PTeazer noted that when they designed off of the new 2006 model, they had to use the top "lip shape" of the bumper, in order to avoid require the cutting off of the front frame that was required for the past smmothie. With the top bumper edge shape still being there, that led them to still call it a "bumperette". (I like the smoothie shape myself....so it was a pleasant suprise when we opened the box) 2) Since this 2006 bumperette is a new part, it does not yet come in urethane (very expensive mold upgrade for them); it is in fiberglass only. But, my guy at the body shop noted that it was very thick, and of good quality. So hopefully, it will be a great result! I am currently also researching the fog lamp cut-out with Chrysler and PTeazer, as the shape seems to be too large and round for the OEM fog lamps. I will keep you posted on any glitches...and the results.

I got an answer to the 2006-7 fog lamp question from the techies at Auto/TruckToys.com.

November 10, 2006Just an update for those of you curious about the 2006 PTeazer "not so" Bumperette! Below is a link to the photo in my gallery.
Got my ride back from the body shop Monday....and it looks great. I am particularly happy that the bumperette does not have the chrome groove, and looks really more like a smoothie (the look I really wanted!
