    Default Help fitting the rear bumper.....

    Hi guys,

    Right, do i got today my read bumper, it is a normal bumper, for the prefecelift. I had an incident last week so i have to replace the bumper.

    The issue is that I have seen the how to and I kinda know how to do it, the only issue is that the screws are toot tight and I cannot undo them. Anyone willing to give me a hand, locally to Hatfield ? I would like to have it done Thursday, being my only day off, if anyone can help me. I am willing to travel locally (ish) so .... !!!

    Thanks a lot guys ! (beers will be on me) !!

    It looks very simple, the only issue is that the screws are locked, I cannot unscrew them, otherwise I would not have bothered you with the removal/replace. You should see the other bumper, color match is almost the same. And I am glad that I had this choice ! The other seller has not replied not even by now and the bumper was blue.

    On the other hand though, this is what i did today :

    1. The car had new boots, winter ones, 2 pirelli and 2 continentals having about 5 mm thread, cost : 125 (fitted and balanced)
    2. Went to Luton tu buy ht e bumper from G M Spares, there is a guy there, Douglas which was very helpfull
    3. Went to Hendon salon and did some extensions on some lady who had nothing else better to do (the monies are welcome though)
    4. From Hendon went to Fulham to get the amazing roof box (45 quid fitted) and finnaly, around now, came home and enjoying a nice Ristorante pizza with my other half (not the car, the other half) ...

    Pictures will follow soon.

    I can`t wait for Sunday, for the bumper replacing !!! HIhihihih
