I’ve had a good few folk message me asking why I have rivets poking up the way from my bumper. Well, let me explain. Unfortunately my rear crash / jack bar was slightly too big for the car. It wouldn’t allow for the cut bumper to slide over it as it would then stick out about 50mm from the car. So, me being me, I didn’t want to spend lots of time changing the bar or having a new one fabricated. So I came up with the (genius?) plan to space out the back bumper instead.. that left me with a gaping hole on each side and when you looked down. For the sides, I simply put some black sleeved washers over some bolts which I think looks pretty awesome. However for the top I needed something to cover it up, then comes this massive sheet of genuine carbon fibre (thanks @automek). It was placed under the lights and under the top of the bumper then riveted down. Not easy to explain, but hopefully you can make it out in this image! So there you go, now i’m spacing out back bumpers 🤪. What silly mods have you done? #Nissan #PS13 #S13 #Silvia #JDM #CarbonFibre #RocketBunny #326Power PS - Rivets obviously still need cut down.
