Bumper protector dimensions

Post by ColonelPanic » Sun Nov 18, 2007 9:09 pm

Can you friendly folks help me out with something? I'm trying to help some folks with non-Viberational transportation figure out if the Pontiac or Toyota bumper protectors will fit on their cars ('07+ Accent 3dr.) The only thing Hyundai offers is a clear bra for the back, yeah that's real useful when hauling stuff around. Can anybody provide me the dimensions for the Pontiac version as well as the Toyota version? Thanks in advance.

Hey James.The one I have on my '03 is a shade under 40" long and about 2.5" deep. It does have a slight radius to it as well. But just as long as their bumper is 5" deep or so, it should fit on there fine. I'm not real impressed with mine. If they need something bigger they should try an aftermarket store and see if they can find a universal one that will give them better coverage. Anybody know if Pontiac ever change the style of the protector for the later models?

I know the tread pattern changed slightly on the Trix, the ones offered for the 05+ were slightly different in pattern but not overall dimensions.I've been pleased with mine so far, it's nice to know you can set stuff down without scraping up the bumper. The fact that my car is black is also a plus since it blends in so well you hardly notice it.That radius issue could be taken care of with a heat gun. Lay it down to stick it on, and start by pushing the middle piece on, and whatever pieces are not touching, run over the length with a heat gun to make it fall down and form to your bumper then push on the tape so it holds.

Does the one that fits around the bumper fit an '09 vibe I wonder?
