I wasn't really going to work on the car this weekend because of the weather/couldn't be bothered but I didn't have anything to do today so I thought I'd have a go fitting up the Aimgain rear bumper. It's even more pain in the *** than I remembered from taking the bumper off previously.. things like this need a lift !
Couple of shots fitted.
The mufflers will now become a bit of a problem. As you can see the bumper sits on top of the muffler now as they're the wrong shape for the space in the bumper. I will need to find some oval shape ones to fill better.
There are a few parts where the fitting is not quite up to where I'd like it to be. I suspect some of this is due to my amateur fitting skill and not mounting all of the mounts properly.. also on the right side there are a couple of mounts which are a bit broken.
Left side near tail light.
Strangely, the gap under the right tail light is larger than the left.. maybe due to the broken mounts on this side not too sure.
Left side again, bit further along. There are some mounts which are not attached from the OEM bumper as well on this one. Panelbeater will need to switch those from OEM part to this one.
Overall not too bad, I was never really a big fan of how pronounced the lip was on the other bumper and always had the plan to have a full bumper replacement at some stage.. next the front.. or maybe a new battery; seems like having the boot open most of the day runs the battery out haha
