Haha yeah, my derv averages 45ish I think!

Right, a bit of an update  :wink:.

Got given a spare front bumper so the old mind started going  :rolleyes:

I cut the numberplate recess out, got the soldering iron out and melted it into it's new place  :cool: I then started applying some filler  :wink:



Smoothed it over and sent it off for a bit of a colour match :afro:

While it was there I measured up and made mesen a little bracket at work  :wink:




Then I got the bumper back today  :cool:



Took the old one off.....



And popped the new one on :afro:



You can just see the little bracket under the bumper.

And then spoilt it by putting the numberplate back on  :sad:



Only 2x cuts and a burnt finger too  :cool:

I think it looks better with the plate on. It's where VW should have put it in the first place. Good work.

Top work, that's exactly how I plan to do my front bumper and number plate. That's a swish little bracket you've knocked up there, is it stainless?

Cheers for the comments fellas :afro:

Nick, the numberplate is growing on me now  :cool: Looks kinda OEM with it on.

Cheers Buddy, it's 304 stainless, we use a lot at work so I made this out of a scrap piece  :smiley:

Saw this on FB... Looks ace!

Looks fine with the numberplate on and as said before, it's where they should have put it in the first place... relocated mine to a similar place as my bodykit allowed it.
