RE: Push bumper
How did it like it? those things are though. My buddy hit one in a Toyota SR5 with a Total Chaos front end (so it was pretty high) and one of those things broke the sealed beam headlight! I cant imagine what it would do to the plastic grill, light bezels, and lights themselves....

Car has been DOA for a bit, so no, but it should be running this weekend to go to the PA GTG. Got to wire up the lights still. Im curious if it will make wind noise, its totally invisible from the driver seat, which is something to remember when parallel parking! Big Grin

I think I will wait until I have a skid plate before I personally take on one of those spring loaded traffic posts! Whacking that thin piece of metal that covers the bottom of the radiator was the cause of a cracked plastic radiator bottom on my wagon. Its pretty exposed down there

RE: Push bumper
reviews on this combination-

the headlight covers, in anticipation of putting in a vent for air intake on the passenger side, combined with the push bumper. I think the grill needs to be black too personally.

Cant decide if I like this or not.

I like the headlight covers, there unique. I think for the vent for the air intake you should put some louvers, or slots, somthing besides a hole and/or mesh. I would definetly black out the grille!! maybe the hood too?

I would say keep it like that! plus a skidTongue

Oooh, so minty-fresh is getting the bull bar! I Like!

Black the grill, add louvers with a vac pod on the (dual?) air intakes, so you can close them up at rest.

RE: Push bumper
I'm thinking of building a push bumper over break, but if I do I think I'll make a whole new bumper instead of keeping the stock one, but using the stock bumper shocks. We'll see
-1982 300D Turbo, 280k miles, ALDA apparently maxxed, fram 8038, 12 lbs boost, non-egr manifolds, W/M injection, 4 brake light mod, Gen II w126 front rotors/calipers, 4-speed swap
In the works: A/W IC, adjust pump, turbo rebuild (w/60 trim comp wheel)
-1980 300SD, 110k, project car. Goal is to get it lookin' like it did on the showroom floor (body and interior wise, not necessarily under the hood )
-1974 240D, FRESH PAINT!!!!!!

RE: Push bumper
Awesome. Exactly like I was thinking. I was in San Antonio for a few months back in '09... Close to 50% of the pick up trucks had bumpers like that, front and back. Youve got a fan here if you do it!
