US style front bumper
If you're after a cheap alternative and want one it to match ya back bumper try this.
First off you will need:
a front and back mk2 small bumper
a grinder with cutting disc
a soldering iron
a sharp knife
some screws and driver
plastic filler
stopper
a tin of adhesion aid,plastic primer filler,bumper tex and some mat or semi mat paint

and also some source of heat (i used a hair drier)
now you need to mark out the back bumper ( leaving luges on either side )and then split it from the bumper bar and cut the middle section out

US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00013kn5
US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00020bx7
now cut the bottom half of the number recess off the front one

on the back of the middle section of the back bumper there is a lot of plastic used to strengthen it so it will need to be cut away
US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00015wn5
US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00030lt2
no the recess of the front bumper i used screws to stop the back section from flexing when fixed
US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00029tk5
now the middle section needs trimmed to fit

US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00023lp4
US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00026dq3US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00025cj6
to fix the middle bit i used some of the left over plastic i had left over and used it with a soldering iron as soldier

US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00041sa6
US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00043pi2
US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00042xv3
when it is all fixed i then gave it a good keying for the filler and then rubbed it down and give it a going over with the stopper and flattened off again
US STYLE FRONT BUMPER Dsc00066hz4
now apply the adhesion aid then primer then flatting off and tex coat the bumper when it is dry you can then paint

I must admit that that isnt my handy work as I am a very messy worker which is why I need a work shop, I cant be trusted near the garden furniture and that includes sitting on them let alone having it to work on car stuff with !! ( i use the coffe or kitchen table for that !!)(and dont even dare ask about what i've put in the dish washer before)

Not forgetting your oven also!!

Good post....can use the same principals on mk3 bumpers i hope!!


I can see no reason as why not !
When yo fill a mk3 bumper the best filler to use is made by upol, one of them is perticularly flexible and up to the job.
