Fender/Bumper Re-enforcement
By Isaac DeCoursey @ EverythingCelica.com

Ok guys, you were all probably expecting this from me at one time or another.

I have several front bumpers and I swap them out for different occasions - photos shoots, local videos/movies, import shows, test fitting and as well as one just for daily driving.

After a while the fender attachments to hold on those front bumpers (after several swaps) get loose, tear or even break off. What are you supposed to do now? Take it to a professional bodyshop where they may charge you $100 to fix each side - possibly, but I've got a quick solution for those who are on a budget.

For less than $10 for the parts and everything is easy to install -- NO WELDING REQUIRED.

I took these photos to write up the guide, but I just haven't gotten around to writing it up yet... but I'm sure that by looking at all the parts in each picture, the procedure should be simple to understand.

use metal glue to attach the parts to each other...

and as for the angle, keep sticking it into your clamp and adjusting it to the correct angle you need - depending on how bad your fender is, the angle could be different happywink

Hi
I not sure to understand how you install it. I know that you replace the stock fender bolt by a new one. But where you attach the second hole of you bracket.
