I agree Tim.  And gorilla glue and tape aren't good attach stuff either.  You guys and your silly attachments to make something that is not a Mustang just floors me.

 :( fiberglass?

sell the kit and save your cash and if you still want a kit get urethane

Once you hit anything, even scrape your bumper your going to have a beautiful crack ride down the front of your ride. Thats the best way to look ricer though, Have a crack through your bumper.

They are all around here like that.  ::)

Not a clue, can you ask your buddy where he got the kit? They might sell the mounting hardware too, well at least im assuming they would.

3m makes a 2 part adhesive just for that kind of stuff, and shelby uses it on some of there cars as well as the "elenore gt500" on the scoops. i have used it one time doing a break vents in my 1964 cuda and they are strong.

There is a double sided tape developed by the evil military-industrial industry complex for the space program. I got a 1/2 inch wide 36 yard long roll from Tap Plastics for $7.95. This is the middle grade product of three grades. The top grade will not come off after 24 hours curing time. It is designed for flat surface bonding, not irregular or flexible (seat covers etc). I've used it to reattach the "O" on a 65 Mustang's hood "FORD", and the "I" on a HUNDAI as well as repairing trim.
Just another recomendation for your consideration.
