Wasn't mike rainbird going to get bumpers moulded from his wrc bumper

As for the mounting this is how i did mine,

Bracket made to hold the bumper from the side rather than having i stud showning on the bumper like many do,



And then the mounting to the chassis points,Which i made from box section and welding in 2 m8 nuts on each side to bolt to the oe fitting,

Just to add i got three bumpers two of which needed alot of prep work but again as guys say these are meant for rally cars so are not finished the way we would like,i had to do the same as mike has done to his bumper filling it up to sit right to the headlights and fill all the mould dips,the cheapest bumper needed nothing doing just had to prime it which i found hard to belive
