Dub, have you ever worked with one of these:

I have a friend with a damaged nose, hood surround and front of both fenders. All cosmetic damage no structural. Is this an OK solution??

Appreciate your professional opinion.

Thanks, Mike.

Not sure what you are asking. Installing a front clip or the one you are showing from CC. Anyway, is the damaged clip removed? maybe a picture so we can see. They do sell hood surrounds and side pieces also. Installing a front clip is pretty straight forward work. Prep the bonding areas from old adhesive, a good adhesive, and mocking up the fit to make sure of what things look like when you go to bond it. The one's I have done were by myself so I had to have everything in place first. Once you start the bonding process there's no turning back so mocking it up and checking the fit are paramount!

This was an Eckler front clip that I removed for an original GM clip.

Mocking up the clip, which took me many tries to get right.

You might have better luck of him answering if you ask this in the paint and body section.

also you are not asking for tech help. you are asking for an opinion on a nose to buy. he may not want to get into endorsing one company over another.
