    I have all the gear, but no idea. Reversed off my drive into a car belonging to one of Matthews mates. No damage to the other car, just dented my pride and rear quarter bumper! Doltsrus.

    If I was a novice I might ask " half a mo the bumper extends the full width of the car and the quarter bumpers are made of plastic, if they're are not then you must have some knowledge of fabrication?", like the fuel tank by the way, why? it's position seems to be more exposed than the original since there is no firewall between you and it.

    I did make the bumpers myself, was a welder/ fabricator for a lot of years. Finn.
