Quick help!
Do you guys know EXACTLY how the dettachable front lip on the L bumpers are mounted.

Just give me a list of basic tools you'll think I need (im very crafty)

Reason being I am so urgent, is because I gotta make it to the yard before they close and the car is going to the crusher tomorrow.

Im at work and am just gonna get together tools and hit it on the way home.

Mission impossible (but possible if someone helps me!)

Thanks in advance

Why is it going into crusher?? And should be plastic tabs if I remember the front end right

I know the 96 GT lips are bolted on. I forgot what size though. They are basically screwed into the plastic with metal clips.

The l lips are held on by coarse thread #10 combo screws, the tabs have fold over nuts. A 1/4 drive and #10 socket should be all you need alex.

10mm bolt and philips screws. Bring some needle nose pliers also

There is six of them holding the lip to the bumper and two holding them to the fender liner.

Appreciate the quick response guys, I got there with my tools and was gonna grab the one piece headlights (very good shape) and both were gone...

Its a bummer, was gonna have an L lip on my OB bumper, but it has me thinking...

...someone else around here is playing with Legacies also...

That blows...nobody here plays with first or 2nd gen Subaru at all.....all the parts are all mine...///insert maniacal laughter///.

I don't know why there isn't a following for these cars, we live in a freaking desert with tank roads and the military has cut hundreds of miles of trails to exercise their vehicles. Something these cars were designed for.

The only thing I have to play with around here is Allegheny State Park and the snow when winter is in full effect. Love passing pretentious people in like lifted pickups with a 14 year old jap wagon.

Great times.

Do the side skirts from a gt sedan fit a wagon?

zangado1 02-08-2013 08:54 PM

1996 front bumper lips are the only year that is removable,the other years are all part of the bumper cover mold from the factory and is not removable,i looked into this for myself because i have a 95 and wanted to buy a front lip for my car from the junk yard myself,so you need to look for a 1996.

Sludgeroo 02-08-2013 09:02 PM

It was a 96, but I ended up getting their too late..
