You are absolutely right. I replaced my front bumper a couple of years ago after sliding on ice. It is doable, but takes a lot of time and a few cuss words.This is not a job for the faint of heart or for one who has little attention to detail or patience I must add. I am technical, patient, and tenacious... And I found the job to be a challenge. Totally doable, but a challenge. Just be ready to go-slow, keep up with every fender screw, bolt, etc in separate bowls or bags and take plenty of cell phone pictures along the way to see/remember where each screw and bolt goes.
