I'll join the Mint train.

 

I Like Big Bumpers, they're cheap insurance that will help protect that nice body work and paint.

 

I'm thinking of getting some of these Triumph overriders for mine. :)

I love my diving board bumpers makes a great bench when you just can't push 2000lbs uphill anymore also great tool and nut storage shelf just check before you drive off or you might send tools flying into traffic (learned that the hard way screwdriver at 65mph can do serious damage, lucky only the pavement was hurt).

More mint goodness. 

 

It took me about 30 minutes to remove the rear bumper and another hour to assemble and install the early bumper using the mount kit that use the existing holes.  Easy peasy. 

 

Scope creep then kicked in. Holes were filled, lower molding removed, more holes filled. Side lights removed, more holes filled. Front air dam mounted, more holes filled. Respray.

Wow - your car is stunning! Is that an original paint color? Mine is Fjord Blue and all the reading I’ve done on here says that it’s better to leave the car the original color if at all possible. You did a great job with your bumpers.

Thank you for the compliment. The original color was Pastellblau, paint code 044. The current color is a modern BMW blue.
