    I have a vrsf fmic and no place to bolt the front bumper to under the headlight. So I have a 1 inch gap between the bumper and the bottom of the headlights. Does anyone have a solution (part of fabrication)?

    I ordered brackets that substitute the crash bar they work pretty good. Can't remember the company right now, they were about 85$ for the pair shipped.

    Boosted fab, worth every penny.. Direct bolt on, I had them installed in 15 minutes. Check out my dsm build thread post #21 to see some pictures of them. https://www.dsmtuners.com/threads/dsm-in-dsm.517151/ . I'd recommend getting them sooner rather than later because it'll start putting excessive stresses on the connection between the fenders and the front bumper.

    That’s exactly what I was looking for. Thank you! I just ordered them. As for putting stress in the fender, it has already done its damage. I’ll have to bend the piece back up and most likes have to drill out a new hole and bolt it up.
