Hi Guys,

In the process of fitting XH bumper to XG.Just wondering if anyone has done this that can give me some advise.Firstly wondering if reflectors just under tail lights come off or have to stay on?i would like them off but have holes in panel when removed,is there a way around this?

Secondly have to get gas fitting moved from spare typre door to new bumper, will need a new hose as old ones not long enough.Got quoted $150 is this a reasonable price? could it be done as a backyard job?

Cheers
Daniel

He's talking about the rear bumper!

and yes, $150 to refit the service line and filler isn't a bad price.
