I'm actually doing it all myself with spray cans. I was not originally going to spray the rear quarters, but there were a few veryyy tiny bubbles (1mm at most) in the paint at the bottom of the rear quarters so thought it best to address while I was there. I was surprised at how good a finish you can get with the cans. Obviously you need to wet sand and polish the clear coat afterwards to get it completely flat and rid of orange peel.Looks good! How are you painting the car? Sounds like you have access to proper facilities? I’m currently balls deep in similar repairs to my car but limited to home repair. Luckily anything I’m painting is covered up with skirts etc. I need to get under the backend on mine next really
Yes mate, what do you want to knowDo you guys on here know much about the corrosion on/around the front brackets holding the front bumper on? I've heard a little about it on here but not seen and photos of the corrosion. Just want to address all potential areas now before any corrosion progresses.
Dead easy, I must have had mine off 4 or 5 times in the last few months.Thanks for sending through! So it's
the bracket holding the front bumper on. Looks like surface rust on yours and you caught it well before it became an issue.
How easy to remove the front bumper?
Okay great info thanks buddy. Will refer to this little guide when I go to take a lookDead easy, I must have had mine off 4 or 5 times in the last few months.
First off two 10mm bolts at the front through the bumper under tray (the bit connected to the bumper not the main under tray) into the subframe.
2x 10mm bolts under archliner into bumper bracket.
3x T20? Torx on either end (6x total), one on the arch lip into archliner, two under the front corner into the archliner.
2x trim clips on the top of grille into slam panel.
Other than that disconnect the bonnet switch, foglight plug and a firm pull on each side where they clip into the wings.
