Rear bumper:/
« on: 19:09, Sat 15 October 2011 »
Had murder today, trying to fit a rear bumper, my replacement brackets and rear arches were delivered so I gave them ago, everything just wouldn't line up, ended up getting really annoyed :evil: and packed in for the day. Anyone else had trouble when replacing brackets?
Would help alot as I'm loosing patience & time :/

Panel gaps on my 5 are all over the place. The front indicators are what really get to me, i spent ages trying to get them to look right.

That's helped me alot lads, thanks  :mrgreen: I think mine looks worse as there are about 3 different colours around the back bumper  :lol: probably abit of an illusion!
Thanks again,
Rob
