Quote from: SuperArt on February 11, 2022, 20:17The TTE bumper install has NOT gone smoothly so far.I might be thick here by not knowing how to do a simple job like this, but there is no doubt the TTE bumper is actually thick.I'm not kidding, the lip under the lights must be half an Inch thick the one which runs across the front secured by four screws is like 1cm thick. The bumper doesn't sit flat, it's very raised.TTE Bumper top lip:You cannot view this attachment.TTE Bumper lip (near lights):You cannot view this attachment.What's even more confusing is the recessed vent/grille area fouls with the inside "gubbins" where the fog lights so it doesn't go far in enough.Lastly, mystery tab. What is this even for?You cannot view this attachment.Anyone know where I can get copy of the TTE bumper install manual?

Did you also need to relocate the horns?

Quote from: Ardent on March 2, 2022, 23:57In your driving career, how many times have you been in the situation where the car/object in front of you, has reversed into you? Or, how many times have you driven in to the car or object in front of you? I write this from the perspective of trying to ease your mental uncomfortableness.To further alleviate the issue and your uncomfortableness. I am prepared to give you £1k, for your death trap 2. You know it makes senseYou can then put that towards a super safe SUV.
Quote from: Topdownman on March 3, 2022, 07:11Perhaps you could think about having one fabricated to fit the space you have?Maybe worth chatting to Ropey Racing who make a rear one, to pick their brains about how they determined the strength needed?https://www.ropeyracing.com/mr2-parts/2020/2/20/1elesacvp2xuxwmvvltzqawzafr0jp-7pwp9?
Quote from: cptspaulding on March 3, 2022, 12:58IIRC there are two differing front crash bars for the 2 as I found out when I damaged mine.My original on a 2003 was fairly thick but the one I replaced it with was about half as thick. May have had a couple of spacing brackets too (too long ago now).Might that help?
