My bad, forgot to say it would be holes behind the numberplate for extra air.

That's it.
I just wanted to know if the bumper still feels solid. Didn't want to weaken it by cutting chunks out.

A bumper isn't really the strongest of things in any instance, i wouldn't remove plastic to the stage it felt flimsy, but you could quite easily take alot more out than muzizle has

Drilled holes and cut the crash bar out completely behind the number plate area, but left the ends in as they are used to mount the bumper.







Not flimsy at all.

Also used plastic bolts in the top corners of the number plate area to mount the plate.

I am breaking my car so it is for sale if anyone is lazy.

Easy my good friend.

Thin piece of metal (in my case a long piece of meccano), mole grips and a blow torch.

Clamp the metal in the mole grips, heat the metal until it glows and it slices nicely through the crash bar. Can cut all the way through without cutting the outer bumper.

For the holes I used a plasterboard hole saw
