    Ooops I did it again.

    After less than a week of fixing the rear bumper, I have ripped it off once again, bit more seveare this time but I reckon its salvageable, Need some time though to do it so It will have to wait, till next week.

    I cope with touch up paint and tiger seal. The front aint to bad its the rear thats low. I have a Reiger Rear extension on mine and I must say Rj did a bloody good job of putting the extension on that that aint cracke when getting caught its just the vaux standard part thats weak.

    u can say that again, vauxhall rubbish, anybody figured out how to stop the front bumper poping out under the headligh? supprisingly the small plastic ridge about 2mm high doesn't seem to be strong enough to hold on the bumper :shock:

    i've tryed everything short of glueing it into the brachet, but i'm not sure thats so wise...

    then again.. maybe

    The problem is that my headlight bracket has been broken, I think from when a car pulled out infront of me and I had to brake heaps and stopped in time but only just enough so that I got a scratch on the front bumper which later on revealed a broken headlight bracket.

    I will get photo's tomorrow to show u behind the headlight where it has been broken.

    i know whats back there, thing is, there is no bumper serport under the headlight, only at the side. which means once the plastic is a little worn, it won't sit behind the catch anymore and it droops down slightly. not sure how to fix it, i might replace the plastic brachet and see if that makes any diffrence, otherwise it's going to be glue time
