Does anyone know how to remove the frontbar...i ran up the back of somebody the other day and it needs to be fixed. My partner just happens to be a panel beater but nobody knows anywhere around here how to get it off. He doesnt want to experiment

Also im really thinking now since theres a bit of a ding in the bonnet, that i should remove the badge for that 'smooth look'....any hints in removing that too.

Cheers

Ok, you need a new front bumper, it's plastic.

Other than that, remove the emblem by heating it with a hairdryer (to loosen the tape), and then use dental floss to cut it off.

After that, get the hole filled, paint it, and you're good to go :)

Try a junkyard for a new bumper, you might luck in and find a black one.

Hope this helps.

unfortunately removing the badge does not give you the smooth look, but rather a large round indentation in the front of your hood. You need to have a piece of metal welded in to fill the dent and smoothed, and then repainted.
