Finally fitted the new bumper today and I'm rally pleased with the results
Thanks to G MAN (Garreth) for letting me have it a bargain price that included all the ancillary parts needed (vxr moulding for slam panel, under tray, fogs and adapters, and mesh grill.)
originally in red, I started by stripping the bumper down to the skin and a very good mate of mine sprayed it in "Star Silver" I decided on a satin black for the V grille to complement the light bar at back(Y)
Gd only knows why VX never made this bumper standard on the SE
Fitting was a doddle, you just need to remember to drill out the rivets on the slam panel moulding and fix in the new VXR moulding.. I think this just gives it a more pointed pronounced (Pointed) look by the shape of it!
Slam panel was identical to mine so no need to swap ( I think this only applies to facelift models??)
ps, sorry for the filthy state of van and pic quality
