How do I remove the Front Bumper Impact Strip?

Did a search and couldn't find it, but I need to know how I can remove it so I can paint it.

I want to remove it to paint it as it is a little scuffed from a motorcycle.

At the same time I'll do the back one as well, so if anyone can tell me how to remove the front and rear impact strips, I need to know so I can fix them this weekend or sometime soon.

I still need to get a new grille insert and chrome strips anyway, so I'm not in a major rush, but I would love to know.

Alon

do a search on bumper strip. i'm about to do my rear one - i believe it's 4 or 5 bolts - somewhat simpler than the front.

Alon,

Are you talking about painting the bumper cover or the 3" black impact strip itself? Either way, look in the chassis manual and find the section on bumper removal. THe bumper cover has to come off of the car and then the impact strip gets taken off of the bumper cover.

Believe it or not, my wife hit a fox, trashed the bumper cover on the bottom end, and then, after I had sourced a vg condition used bumper cover from another lister, she had an argument with a chevy pickup over the same section of asphalt! The shop that did the repairs had never seen someone come in with collision damage with their own used bumper cover replacement. (We also needed a fender and paint work.)

BTW, I tried several boneyards for months, bumper covers and impact strips are vurtually unobtainable because they are a high demand item from shops and the boneyard usually will hold it and sell the whole front or rear clip.

HTH, someguy

Well I buffed it with some polish, it seems to be ok, it was just tire rubbing scuffs that did not do much.

I still might paint it.
