So I pulled it off.... now getting it back on is a bitch. The corners aren't lining up right with the fender of the car.

Anyone have an idea on what i need to adjust to make it work.....

I'll get some pictures up once it's clean and such with the painted bumpers. It looks decent but the paint we had mixed is a little bit too blue. The main problem is that it's just too freakin' glossy (probably the two clear coats we did on it) so it really stands out. Once I get it wet sanded it should all be gravy.

Thanks for listening to me ramble

If your car hasn't been in an accident before all you have to do is line up the sliders on the side properly and make sure you put in all the screws inside the back fender wall. If the bumper appears lop-sided, it may be that the sliders are not sitting in properly. I've had this problem a few times. It helps to have an extra person around to help you align it.

I got you're PM, sorry I'm a bit slow in replying.

Yeah, I got it figured out. One of my mounts was slightly bent (probably from when we took it off)

If anyone is removing their rear bumper I found that it's VERY east to do if you pick the back end up and remove the rear wheels. You've got access to the two main little screws on each side.

Also, on each side there's a plastic clip in the back corner of the bumper you remove that goes onto the white impact piece. Just a firm smack pops it into place.

If you're doing this, pm me and I'll give you more info.
