its easy if you have a spot welder, spot weld drill bits etc. its pretty tough to do to be honest, I would say the easiest option is to ask a bodyshop to see if they can fit you one on

Cutting the old one off is the hard bit.

I found it a lot easier and cleaner to grind the spot welds down rather than drilling them, half the time the drill bit wont take out the whole weld point and you end up prising it away with a screwdriver :pancake:  (plus you end up using the grinder for preping afterwards anyway)

any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates
!
you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

You will need to grind the welds but that's it.
The whole front will come off in one lump.

Try not to bend anything like the wings positions.
