the body shop cant figure out what to do. i thought that the st170 bumper (new style euro) was plug and play after the crash foam was removed. it looks like we are gona have to cut the rebar where the holes are to clear the fog light pods.

does any one have pictures of a euro rebar? or how they cut there rebar to fit any euro bumper? any help that i can give my body shop would be greatly appreciated!

If your ZX3 is a 00 or 01 you have to or the body shop has to cut the front steel beam support a few inches from the end in a downward inner angle towards the ground on each side.

that way the euro bumper can wrap around the modified crash beam and fit snugly..

Re: HELP ASAP

DO A SEARCH DAMNIT


With the 98 bumper you had to use a rubber mallet to get it on, starting in the middle and working out. I dunno if this is the same on the St170

Dude you coulda asked me, I can basically see your house from my rooftop
