Pumabuild FRP Front Bumper

Postby rnnicol » Mon Apr 06, 2015 9:45 pm

Hi folks,
As you know trying to get an original frp front bumper these days is very hard, I know pumabuild do there own glassfibre one, so I thought id ask around before getting one, I bought one of Kieran a few years ago, but had to get rid of it, due to quality issues.
So I thought is ask around this time before buying, any information would be great.

You need to cut out the vents and fastening holes for the lamps, and bolts, fitt the inner parts of the standard bumper to it so it will atatch to the car,and it needs some minor looking after in case of minor imperfections.

otther then that, it's pretty streight forward. :)
