Well have moved into the new place now, got most of the stuff in just a few more bits of furniture and the garage to transfer across now.
Caldina is also back and bumper has been painted. Haven't gotten it out of the bubble wrap yet lol.

Yesterday I finally got a chance to remove my stock bumper and install the TRD bumper. It looks way better than the stock one and also isn't cracked like the stock one is.

The car looks sort of sad without a front bumper lol:

The bumper just after unwrapping from the "Genuine Kia Parts" bubble wrap.

So got time to tint the Foglights today. Not the best but first time I have tinted anything before.

And I finally found the mounting kit for the replacement TRD badge for the front bumper, I thought the screws were lost during the move but luckily I found them!

So I got time yesterday after work to install the foglights and trim pieces to complete the bumper.
While I was there, I decided to replace the faded grille meshing that came with the bumper and install some brand new black mesh.
Results make it look so much better:

Hey @rentaspace hope you are enjoying your Caldina. I'm looking to obtain the Front Grill like the one you had on before changing the Bumper to the TRD Bumper; please direct me where I can order one online (or a whole Bumper) as out here part shops don't have any Caldina Kits in stock.

Hey mate, actually about to list the car up for sale (due to family reasons not cause I hate the car lol). 

I still love the caldina but my family has expanded and so it’s not suitable for me anymore.

I would suggest contacting ‘bodykit caldina’ on Facebook  to see if he makes just the insert up the top, I already sold mine and just have the bottom bumper left. I’m not sure which model you have too but the facelifted models won’t fit the pre-facelift and vice-versa

@rentaspace That's sad to hear. But you had fun with it. 

Anyway, let me check on Facebook maybe I can be of luck (I also have the Pre-facelift Model). I working on slowly building it to the perfect ride; hope I can rely in you for some advice or two.
