Question Rieger frontbumper ??

Hey guys.

I'm planning to install a front Rieger GTS bumper on my E30. But I want to do this myself because I want to save some money to spend on other things for my E30.
So can someone tell me what I have to do. And if it's possible maybe in steps so it's easy for me to do.

Already thanks.

it's not a whole lot of fun....trust me.....do you have a shop ? you will most likely need to do some shaving as well...do you have a grinder/sander ?

I have a lot of tools that I can use from my father. (He really has a lot of tools for all kind of things to do)
What do you mean whit that "shaving" Jeremy ?
And what would be the problems I have to deal with when I want to install it by myself ?

But I'm also going to check how much it would cost me extra when the shop would install it for me.

Thanks for your reaction Jeremy.

And if anyone else wants to help, don't hesitate.

I'm not sure how hard it is for the rieger bumper, but in general installing fiberglass bumpers is pretty fun.
I don't know how everyone does theirs since i hear alot of places are actually gluing parts of the bumpers onto the car. I myself have always used rivets because they dont (usually) come loose. Alot of the time this involves me drilling into the fiberglass, but afterwards i go overtop with some resin and sand it back down again, prime, and nobody would ever know.

Expect to be cutting and shaving the bumper and parts of your car quite a bit though because nothing is ever a direct bolt on (well, most of the time i guess).

I guess i'd say, attempt to do it yourself and if you get stuck, just bring the car and the bumper into a shop afterwards.

It's a major bitch I installed the whole GTS kit in like 10-12 hours and it is on there the right way. I had to use my dremel and sand down some of the edges to make them fit nice and snug. If you have never done it before I would recommend having a shop do it but if you are out of money find a friend who has done it before and let him help you through it.
