    Is my bumper fit correctly

    Just fit front bumper but gap looks big, is this right or is it because I have used original bumper irons?



    It's all shits and giggles until someone giggles and shits!

    If your not happy, can you not re-drill the mounting holes on the brackets that bolt to the legs and move it all back.

    Looks great, by the way. Get it outta the garage and get some full shots.

    There are specific blade bumper mounts which would bring them closer.. ��

    No thanks, I'll soon be hitting his times on just a 1.8litre cubic capacity.

    The gap does look on the large side, the bumper irons are threaded to take the bolts, so drilling them probably wouldn't work.
    Just buy the correct bumper brackets

    Cut and shut the irons?

    Redrill the irons and weld on new captive nuts? - remove the mounting bolts, push the bumper in until it sits just right, mark the irons through the holes in the chassis rail, remove bumper irons and drill as per marks - maintaining the same centreline height as per the original holes. Weld on nuts. Re-paint irons.

    Or just buy new ones - depends on your mentality/frugality.

    But that is exactly what I would do, as most of the re-pop stuff is here nor there!, So I would make my own to fit right

    I'd be more worried about that gap from the wing to the front panel!

    Cracking colour combo with those wheels though
