ES and fog lights for 2003 SE

Hello guys. Just looking for information regarding the quality of the aftermarket ES bumpers for my 03 SE. I have been to several pick and pull around my area and I can't find a ES bumper that is not dented, scratched or completely destroyed.
I have found several online. Just wondering if you guys have used them to replace or convert your cars to use fog lights. Same thing for the fog lights.

Thanks in advance.

Never liked aftermarket body parts, they seem to always require as much work as used OEM; and never fit quite right. I am a bit more OCD about that stuff than others though lol.

I have an original ES bumper behind the garage with fogs, if you come to Raleigh, you can have it.

Converted mine about 10 years ago, bought an ES bumper off of a member here at a meet.

Good morning Dan
Thanks for the offer.

I have heard the same thing from the shop that painted my intrepid. I showed him the stuff from ebay and Carid. But the prices of a real one are too much.
Thats why I have been looking for a use one in excellent conditions with no luck.

Whats your zip code

Have you checked Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market Just enter the info and it'll tell you what's available in your area.

Also you'll need the fog light wiring harness. If you can at least find that in your Pick-n-Pull yards that's a start.

I'm guessing that color doesn't matter as you did a full car repaint with a non-stock color?

For the 02+ model years, the wiring harness is all one piece from the BCM to the fog lights.
There are some how-tos that show how to run the wires...

Hello guys

Ron, thanks for the mirrors, got them today. They look brand new, nothing compared to the ones from the pick and pull.

BY the way, spend the entire morning working on my electric seats from the concord. They have been cleaned, removed all the rust, primed and painted semi gloss black. Put the passenger side together, unfortunately the motor that raises and lowers the height on the front part of the seat does not work. And thats the one I can't remove to replace due to that metal pin in the way. Oh well at least I can move the seat forward and aft and recline.
Tomorrow will start on the driver side.

I also drove the car for 15 minutes to make sure all works and found some red oil in the garage and a little bit of coolant, not as much as when it got down in the 30's. I guess TGS was right it must be a coolant line leaking due to lower temperature.
Any way I am sending the pictures from the lines under the car with the red oil. What you guys think?

I may have to change the oil in the power steering pump since It has been making a loud noise for a few years now. I read the post that somebody posted today about the PS noise and I think I have the same problem. The level is always full. So it might have to be replace.

Oh wow, I travel up north now and then every year, would be no big deal to throw it in the back of my truck and meet up along the way, but I've never been out towards Alabama.

Leo, the pink fluid is dripping from the two transmission lines in your photo.
Those two lines are a very common leak point. As they get older, they become very stiff and brittle.

One line goes up to the top of the radiator, the other connects to the bottom of the radiator.
Tranny fluid goes in the top, comes out the bottom and goes into the tranny cooler in front of the radiator and then back to the transmission.

Wipe or wash the lines down on that side of the radiator, then continue to watch and see where it is coming from.

Good afternoon tags, are they user replaceable? Is it prudent to change the radiator as well? I want to replace the water pump on the car since it has 137,000 miles. Since i need to do that I might as well put a new one in it. Timing chain, thermostat housing and PVC valve are on the list as well.
