Well, this is the result with just forcing the bumper on that last 1/2" or so. The back of the bumper where the gap is showing is ziptied on. Tried to get it as close as possible, but that's as far as it was willing to go.

Maybe when I have more motivation this weekend I'll take it all back apart and see what's what. But for now it'll do so I can continue with some testing to make sure all it as it should be.

^ just run bolts on the inside or clips on the outside to draw them together.

Quads, didn't you have clips?
Someone in this thread had clips.

some searching should yield helpful results.

I thought about doing the quick release clamps on the sides to bring them together, but that depends It'll do for now. Just happy to drive her again! Only < 3 weeks till the tune.

Bolts as a quick fix then! (can't see em)
As long as not a lot of force is required to close it...

However, If you need to use a lot of force to close the gap I would do more trimming. You might get dimples/flexing or other weird stuff going on with those clamps in that case.

You can adjust your beam up and down.

I know I run the fogs all the time. Good and bad weather. The extra light is really nice at night. I use some 55w yellow fog bulbs. They are bright and do not reflect as much as a white bulb.
Fogs are much wider than driving lights. I think that's why they make feel like they have a good cutoff.

You can see an apparent cutoff with the fogs, but you still have plenty of light going upwards. You can clearly see that by turning them on and looking at road signs, threes etc. there is a small amount of light added light everywhere, not just in the lower wide band where the light is actually intended to go.

Not a big deal with the bubls the foglights are made to handle because they don't produce enough light to be significantly blinding. But if you 3x the light output of course you end up with huge amnount of light in that same upper area.

it's like less then a 10 dollar mod at Home Depot/Lowes just look for the draw hasp latches, another benefit for having quick release is when you blow a piping off it's 10x easier to get the bumper off

Haha yeah, I was wondering why he put those latches on, but it makes perfect sense now now that you say it. I think that is Yanos car.

this is the same problem i was having, it was touching at the bottom of my APS, and wouldn't secure on the sides by the wheel-wells. i would cut it back more here where it's touching, and it should mount fine.

You'll need to either mark that area and take down that part or progressively cut small amounts of the bumper then test for a perfect fit

I can already tell that its the pipes that are the problem not the front or any trimming. The front bottom pipes are hitting the inside of the bumper at the lowest spot where there is that small opening. Look there. Like i said before, I just did this with the exact same intercooler and this was the problem. The bottom driver side pipe was the problem. It stuck out too far and hit the bumper. It looks like the driver side fender to bumper gap is worse and thats where i had to cut the pipe.

Went on a cruise with some local guys Saturday. They took a ton of pics, I was the only bugeye out of 12 cars.







I found out real quick I want better brakes and need better tires.

Exactly what am I doing is the problem LOL.. I may go back to black but as I've stated... it'll be a gloss black or similar. I got lots of ideas how to be different but I lack the funds to make it happen sometimes LOL. I'd love to have chameleon wheels like you but don't want them to be damaged by brake dust and harsh/not so harsh chemicals when I clean them.
