Swapped my '99 Civic HX front bumper back to stock - with D-I-Y video

The aero bumper started to get a bit ratty from dragging on the driveway (if it ain't scrapin' it ain't low enough) so I decided to switch back to a stock bumper. Swapped them in a flash and shot a little D-I-Y video.

I got a second stock bumper to modify, as well. I'm going to attack aero bumper #2 differently. The plan is to design it in a CAD program and CFD test it before building, possibly with 3D printed pieces. Still dreaming about wind tunnel testing. Knowing that I can swap bumpers in an hour is a big plus. Tunnel time = money.

Subscribed. Would love to see the modding of the second bumper cover!

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
