Question US Spec Bumper

I am asking for a bit of help here.

I just aquired a US Spec Front Bumper for my 2000 2.5RS (GC8).

I want to install this thing myself. It is already painted and I have the signal lenes.

I was wondering if anyone knows of the website that outlines in detail how to install the bumper (pictures would help as well). I was told by the seller (Alan) that there is a Subaru site in Montreal that has these install instructions but I am not able to find them.

I am mechanically inclined and I know I will have to modify the rebar but I would just like to have the instructions on how to do a job like this in my hands before I tear the front of my car off.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The bumper install is dead easy. I have done it myself about 4 times now I have not modified the rebar, so you're on your own there (but again, it shouldn't be difficult with the right tools - don't use a dremel!!!). Just watch out for ICBC... they do not like you modding the rebar apparently!! (the rebar is ~ 300ish)

subarumods.com should have a description of a bumper install . Check "piaa fog light install" or the like. It is part of another mod... if not, I can give you a hand.

you will definately need to modify your existing rebar to make the us bumper fit. youll need some heavy duty cutting tool. probably best to get the bodyshop to do this for you.

on the other hand you can order a lightweight us bumper beam from autocaresubaru.com (as i did). of course this is not a street legal rebar and icbc wouldnt like it much =|

Smile Thanks Rudypoo

Mr. Rudypoo,

I think you have given me the link that I was looking for.

Thanks allot.

I hope to do the install this weekend.

Thanks to everyone that gave their 2 cents worth of advice.



PS- My dad has a welding shop, so I have access to all sorts of destructive tools to cut the damn rebar
