Question Is there a CSL rep Bumper with 1x1 weave splitters?

I've searched some time now for a rep bumper with 1x1 weave splitters, are there any good ones out there?
Is there any reps thet actually fits good like the VCSL?
Any help in this is deeply appreciated.
Going on my new old school style SC build so only interested in good fitment/high quality alternatives.
Thanks

Seems like it’s hit or miss with reps now, I’m sure other members with CSL bumpers will chime in with suggestions. I’ll be the first to tell you to avoid Streamline though

It doesn’t seem like at this point there’s even a good rep option. It’s either find a used one from one of the better companies, like a VCSL, or buy a new rep and accept it won’t fit or look perfect.

I’m in the same boat...

Thanks for the input guys, I just can't belive that it's so hard to make a good rep, people are willing to pay the extra $

OEM or find used V-CSL.

Until then, just better to wait it out until someone new steps up. Been much more miss than hit lately

I picked this Status Gruppe bumper used from OneFastSicilian yesterday. The owner before him appears to have glued oem side brackets to it and gutted the internals to fit over the Kevlar rebar, so I didn't have to buy all the additional parts to install. I made some adjustments to the white side brackets and got it close to where i want it. Might have to put some shims on the bracket to dip the front lower but I’m happy with the fitment so far. Just need to figure out a better way to give it more support so it doesn't fly off when driving. I was able to self tap a screw through the inside of the bumper directly into the white side brackets but might try to find additional ways to give it more rigidity

The only other issue I see is getting the wheel well plastics to sit under the lip of the sides of the bumper. I really don't want to start dremeling out the plastics to fit, so any advice to anyone who's installed this bumper or like it please let me know what you guys have done.

I hate bad fitment so until someone makes something good I'll keep looking for a VCSL, don't want to destroy a OE bumper BC of FMIC...

Thanks guys.

Hopefully we’ll see a J-CSL bumper sometime soon!
