    fitting coupe bumper to hatch, anything i need to know when doing it

    hi all
    got my coupe bumper all primed and ready to spray
    question is when i fit it is there anything i need to look out for as i remember the hatch one is held on by screws in the arches, pin things underneath and on top by grill
    seems like the coupe bumper has some wierd looking brackets near the fog lamp hole which look like they need to fix onto the body somewhere
    any help appreciated
    also can i get coupe fog light blanking plates so i dont have holes until i get some fogs
    thanks all

    The Fixings are the same on the Hatch and Coupe bumber.

    Are the wierd looking brackets for the Coupe fog lights?

    Fog light blanking plates are not available from Vauxhall, so if you don't have the light units then its holes, unfortunatly.

    As keif said, the coupe bumper goes onto the hatch, the same way the hatch bumper does.
    The legs you speak of are the mounts for the fogs.
    Perhaps fill the holes with mesh temporarily?
