M-Tech Bumper. Got it!! How do I install it?

Hey I just got this huge box with my M-Tech bumper in it!! There's also a bunch of parts with it and it didn't come with instructions.

Does anyone have installation instructions for an M-Tech bumper? I know how to take the old one off but I don't know how to put the new one together or on my car. Any help would be hugely appreciated!!

If anyone can help I'll do a DIY with pictures. I just need a manual or blow up drawing of all the parts. Thanks.

That was pretty helpful. At least I know what a few of the things are that came in the box now!!

Anyone done this DIY yet? Someone must have done it!

I put mine on last weekend. It actually was very simple. I just took my time and made sure everything was done right. The hardest part was figuring out the fog lights. In all it took me about 3 hours by myself.

It looks so awesome! I could not be happier.

What an understatement, it's been done by thousands of others and a five minute internet search would give you all the answers you need not to mention there's a sticky in this forum for such things.

EDIT****.........just realised the date, jeeezuus why do people ressurrect such old threads FFS
