Re: we need a front bumper install how-to

don't the side skirts just have a couple of screws? a guy at work has a wannabe saleen roush crap mix and his side skirts look like they can be taken off in like 2 seconds the way they hang on there.

sure i can take **** apart but putting it back together is a whole other story.

Yea, the two screws on the side and then the body clips under it.

The front bumper is like four screws and two rivets.

I'll do a how to on the front bumper if you give me a few months to get ahold of my new bumper and have it painted.

Re: we need a front bumper install how-to

I wasn't able to get my side skirts off back when I tried to Black Widow my stang. The body clips are in a very uncomfortable place to get too.

Re: we need a front bumper install how-to

ill take some pics when i do the roush kit on.

btw, anybody have tips on getting those pop rivets off? unscrewing them only works on 1 out of 10 of them. i have to resort to just prying them off and hoping they dont break. hey, maybe i can just buy them in bulk? thatd make things so much easier if i didnt have to give 2 ****s if they broke, if i had a bag of 100 of them nearby.

Re: we need a front bumper install how-to

ted, check underneath the skirts just to be sure. Maybe it was different on 99-04 but on my skirts I have screws in the wheel well, and than atleast 10 clips underneath(not those plastic body pins that look like big *** black plastic screws)
