2004 Euro Style Bumper

Ladies and Gents, if you recall my car had gotten rear ended not too long ago. I finally got around to ordering a new rear bumper and it came in yesterday. I went to install it today and realized DPS parts sent me a Euro style 2004 Bumper for my 2001 Boxster. Naturally I got kind of excited because I could finally get rid of the rear bumperettes. I removed the old bumper took off the actually bumper, and drilled out the rivets that hold the plate for the bumperettes. I installed the new bumper everything looked great until I realized that you can see the heat shield through the diffusers.

Now my question is, along with a new bumper in 2004 does the Boxster heat shield change? Or do I have to just bend and adjust it to fit which would kind of be easy. Also does the new style spoiler on the 2004s require a new assembly or and I just dumb and couldn’t figure out how to attach it?.....I currently left the old 2001 style spoiler on and it doesn’t look half bad but I would like to eventually get the 2004 style on there just to finish the look.

I will post pictures as soon as I figure out what to do with the heat shield. Also does anyone know where to purchase the bumper heat shields that attached to the actual bumper (the n shaped on for the exhaust in the center and the diffuser shields)

Thanks sorry for the long post just trying to finish this thing.

try ringing up Gemballa in Malibu 310-457-1709
or post this thread on Rennlist and flatsix.
Also try RUF North America in Texas, those guys will talk your ear off.

Good luck I've been cosidering the aftermarket diffuser, if filling in the gap along the seems can be done well.
