Does anyone know the name of this body kit for 97' astro van

Does anyone know the name of this body kit for 97' Astro van?

This was my car before I somehow crashed the front bumper cover.


I'd like to fix the bumper, but it's not possible on account of some missing pieces.
So I googled to find out where I can get a new one, but couldn't even find out the name of the body kit.

I thought Sarona body kit looked similar, but Sarona doesn't have a sunken license plate area that the cover on my car does.

So this probably is not Sarona, right?

I also think maybe this actually is a Sarona and it's the shape it's got after some procedure for the license plate area.

Does any one know the truth?
I'd really appreciate it if anyone could tell me either the name of the body kit or where I can get one.
Thank you!

No idea, but does your state require front plates? If not, the second one looks like a pretty good replacement....

Good luck!

That type of "aero-under Kit" is Very popular in Europe and Japan.
Might check the foreign forums / mod shops / Google European Astro Front Ends.

Bummer yours is bunged up

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... “May be hard to believe... President Trump should rest easy and concede what was in fact a foregone conclusion: Another OLD MAN won with only about 50% of the Change Believers/Fools showing up."

Being a conversion van the company would have had a kit made for them. Check surplus shops. I know there is one that claims to have every piece for all the different companies.

Can you give me a link or something to the surplus shop that claims to have every piece? That'd be awesome really.

Thanks for the information. I checked out Yahoo Japan and it seems like you're very right.
Trying to figure out how to order one.
