    Calling all MoM's.....I need help from someone who has experience removing a JCW front bumper cover. I need to remove my Coupe bumper to install the new Carbon Fiber (yea, CF bits are starting to multiply again) M7 splitter that I bought from a guy over on the sewing site(brand new still in the box). Let me know if you can lend a hand this weekend.

    I have never removed a JCW Bumper, but I did remove the one from my MC40. I am pretty handy, so I am more than happy to help.

    I hope you have a new intercooler to install while it is off also... :Thumbsup:

    I changed mine over from the stock bumper to the JCW bumper. It wasn't too hard. I can certainly give you a hand. Or we could do it in my shop if you want. Plenty of room and lighting. I'll be there tomorrow. Most of the day.
    Send me a PM if you're interested.

    I never changed one, but I did spend the night in a Holiday Inn Express, so I will be glad to help. :Thumbsup:

    Very cool pictures guys. :Thumbsup:

    Crash, how did you stand to watch that? I know you don't believe in splitters, except on 100+mph race cars. :D
