So o just put this on and fit was good. However I paid $900 extra to ikon for paint. The paint job was mediocre at best,looked like one coat and some runs in the clear. I decided to live with it. Get it put on and pow the color was way off. I'm waiting to see if they make it right. Not happy they didn't correspond to me on friday as to where we go from here. Sitting in limbo on my $900 all weekend. Plus I'm gonna have to redhead install either way. Paid $1900 total.

Ya, thats way off... That sucks. Metallic grey is not an easy color to match. They have to get the air pressure just right to match the ford spec of the metallic.

I would have had local body shop do it. That's what I did with my spoiler turned out perfect

So they are charging 900 now? I paid 600 in February. Sucks to hear it’s not even a good paint job either.

I would ask for them to give the $900 back so you can have a local shop paint it. That would be a very hard color to match. That is a good looking bumper on your-car though and I am sure it will all work out in the end.

Yeah that’s unfortunate. It’s pretty noticeable in that second pic.

I ordered mine through them with a Kona Blue paint match and they did ok so not sure what happened. I also didn’t pay nearly as much.

$900 to paint a bumper is idiotic anyways. You can easily get that done well for $500 at a local body shop

As a fellow magnetic owner that looks good on the car. Sorry about the issue with the paint though. Hopefully IKON does the right thing and refunds you.

Do you happen to have a full front shot of it?

I’ve been seriously considering this front end.

Ikon got my business and I fortunately didn’t have any issues with them.

However, i5 autohaus also offers paint matching for this style bumper so they’re an option.

Wait the bumpers say GT500 on them. I think Ikon should definitely take that off, the design is nice and fit looks great but I wouldn’t put a bumper that says GT500 on my GT.

Grr yall are killing me. I wasn't gonna bumper swap this time but damn that looks killer.

I had an ikon 350 bumper, color was right but the paint definitely started peeling/flaking off. Which I believe was known issue. I got it on a swap though so was fine with it. But had I paid, I'd have been pissed

What did piss me off though was the lower grille popped off and I ran it over. The tangs broke. I emailed ikon asking if I could buy just a lower grill or if buying a gt350 OEM would fit. No response. So after that and the shoddy paint, I swore them off.

If you get it repainted, have them fill in the gt500, that's tacky since it isn't a 500. just wrong that they added that onto their bumper.

goodluk man, other than the color it looks sweet.
