What else do I need?

Postby AvivB » Sat Nov 13, 2010 5:42 pm

I want to switch to RC bumper and I wonder what else I need to get/replace in order to fit the RC bumper.
This is what I have today (the original ST182 bumper on narrow body):

Other than the bumper skin itself all you need is the top support bar.

Then take the side brackets off your old bumper and rivet them on the new RC bumper.. Pretty much it.

There's a really good write up on CelicaTech.com, I would give that a look.

You can even use the stock crash bar, but you will have to cut a few little pieces off the back of the bumper.

Oh and by the way, that bumper you already have looks great!

Its like a mix of the RC and GTS/All Trac bumper. Don't see them very often.

Thanks.

This is the original bumper the ST182 was imported with.
ST182 is the only model ever imported to Israel (3SGE, FWD, NB).
The problem with it is that it block all the air flow to the radiators and this not enough for CS/RC engine...

Yeah it's not very conducive for a heat exchanger/fmic.
