Rear Bumper Impact Strip Install: Any Tips?
In the continuing saga of cosmetic rehab on my 84 300TD, I'm having trouble getting the rear bumper impact strip installed. I thought this would be easy, but noooo...
It's essentially two mounting brackets that snap onto the bumper with a grooved rubber strip on the back of the impact strip itself.
What's so frustrating is that the rubber strip takes an amazing amount of force to slide on or, when I tried to just snap it over the grooves, it's just not pliable enough. Oh and then getting it aligned...
I don't want to break the brackets forcing this on, so any tips appreciated.
