The bumper molding snapped right into place, with minor difficulty with the clips at both ends, but very easy to figure out. The hardest part was prying/breaking the old molding off, but the entire job was definitely NOT the 1.6 hour job that "the book" had listed. If I had to do it again, I could do the install portion in 5-10 minutes.

Also, before I started, I had the molding painted at a local shop for $89, with a lifetime guarantee against bubbling or chipping, etc. (Much more reasonable than another shop that specializes in those "paint the whole car for $250", they wanted $160 just for the bumper!)

Hope this helps anyone who has to replace their molding, I also took pictures along the way if anyone wants them, just shoot me an email.

Cheers! And Thanks for the advice.
