Productive day

Today, I finally got around to swapping the front bumper on die Weisse Lady. Here's what it looked like before:

And here's what it looks like with the replacement in place:

The black rubber insert behind the bumper was bent down, and apparently has a metal stiffener in it, so it stayed bent after I removed the old bumper. Not sure what I want to do about that yet, including possibly nothing. Still, looks a whole lot better with the new bumper on it.

Thanks to @RLT61 for the instructions, and to @unavita for the bumper.

"Engineered like no other car in the world." That's both a bug and a feature.

Man my first response to seeing that new bumper on your car was "God! That's pretty!"! I'm so glad I could help you with that!! Seems to be a theme and now that the weather is nice drive up and we'll tool around. I have a new toy... too!!
