  • Avanti Bumpers

    Well, its time to remove the bumpers. Reading the manual, it makes it look like a piece of cake. looking at the front and rear bumpers, it doesn't look as easy.

    Are there any short cuts or things to look for that the book hasn't covered ?

    I'm planning on dropping them off at Librandi's in Middletown,Pa to get them rechromed. I've already dropped off the air cleaner and was pleased with the price and the other pieces I saw that they've done.

    Buy a can of PB blaster, and soak ALL the bolts at least a week ahead
    of when you want to take it apart. (no WD-40 is not the same)
