about the foam thingy...its just pops out..there are like 2 clips that hold it together...which you just pop out.


about the bumper the sides near the wheel well plastics will reach the new bumper.howeever the front under the Oil Filter will not.

make some brackets out of metal. Here's some pics. I made a few & sold them but the shipping made it not worth it to me, so here's the measurements to do your own.

and a pic of it with the bends in it...

put the pointed hole on the plastics, see where it hits the bumper. mark the bumper with a sharpie. Then drill the bumper with an angle drill, or take the bumper off & drill it. Then rivet the metal to the bumper with the metal on the inside of the bumper. Then reinstall the bumper. I have no foam on the inside of mine since mine's a 2003 and the foam wouldn't fit. THe foam just pulls off.

with the bracket idea, it just looks like the other ones when you take the bumper off. The underbody plastice keep the engine clean...
