Hang tight. I have pics of the process. Must reduce size first. I'll post in a few minutes.

Thanks so much for all of the pictures and the process you went through. So, as you say, it looks really loose. Are you going to glue it on the plastic piece? I have to make 2 of these because my wife and I both have these phones. We are currently using the Z3 bumpers but our sound is muffled. The thing is, the bumper fits so tight and I want that same fit on this. I just don't understand why for the life of me that a company makes a phone and no bumper.

Honestly, I can stretch my old bumper on my Z3 too. But I'm not going to lie. This Z4 bumper rubber grip is a little loose to the plastic piece. 

 

I have not decided if I'm glueing the rubber piece to the plastic piece yet. I could easily do it. It would take 5 mins and an overnight dry with some strong glue. But really, when I hold it, the rubber isn't going anywhere. It doesn't feel loose in my hands at all. It doesn't wobble on the phone that I feel at all. So I'm not sure if I'll even bother glueing. 

 

My husband also has a Z4 and he immediately had me order him this case after seeing my pictures that I showed you guys. 

 

But glueing would definitely tighten up this modified bumper. Because the plastic snap on piece isn't as loose as the rubber piece if you can see in the pictures. 

 

I'm very pleased with how it turned out. But I agree with you 100% that it's ridiculous that Verizon especially has not come out with a bumper for their flagship 5G phone. Absolutely ridiculous. Yes, they have cases but they obviously don't understand the mod concept then!!!!! It's ludicrous that we are even having to modify cases to make our own bumpers. Unbelievable I say!

LOL. Sounds good. What are your thoughts on this one? It's close to what you purchased.

Weird! It looks like the same case! The only difference I can see is that this one claims to have a built in screen protector. Mine did not have this at all. So I didn't have to fiddle around with removing that part. But if you wanted this feature if would be a plus I'd say.

Because Moto makes the phone and it's up to the case companies to make the cases if they want to.  Moto stopped making their own brand of cases around 2012.
