Default does anyone know a hitman?

because there is a mazda engineer somewhere that needs to be taken out. jk of'course.

i just removed the front bumper for the first time today. seriously? did we really need all of those nuts/bolts?

*i must confess that i actually used my air hammer with a chisel attachment to help with the removal. 3 seized nuts required it.

I can remove mine in like 5 minutes now since I only leave the top bolts and the side nuts on. That deep 10 still pisses me off.

Just be like a drifter and tip tie your bumper on, that way you can take it on and off with a pair of wire clippers and a few more zip ties.
All the cool kids are doing it.

(Hustler isnt a cool kid because his goal is lower lap times not getting mad drifto points)

The world record for R&R of the front bumper is 3 minutes 12 seconds. We are the proud holders of said record.

Any challengers?

I'll take that challenge! What's up mr. Bell? So what's on the agenda in your neck of the woods on this fine evening?

I can beat that if prep time does not count and I can use linear shape charges and tie downs...and the car does not have to work after.....


You think thats tough? Try reattaching the undertray of a Lancer Evo MR using the factory loser-spec plastic hardware. I went temporarily insane, gave up, and just made hardware myself it was so bad.
