Default How do you remove the front bumper?

Putting a cam in, and have a procharger on the car. Looking to possibly change the way the piping is run and wanted to take the front bumper off to make life a little easier.

Anyone have a how to for this?

Thanks

Remove all the bolts and push pins-easy as 1-2-3. The hard ones to reach connect it to the fenders a lonf extension get them easily.

actually it doesn't I find everything I need and then some of course if the info you are searching for isn't on the forum you won't find it...what you search is as important as how you search....people who say it sucks are doing it wrong...

FWIW if you spend $120 you can get the manuals and all that stuff is in there.

I just removed and re-installed mine....takes 15 minutes to take it off.....and about 30-45 to put it back on....

Figured out how to get it off in about 30 minutes, not really rocket science, just bolts and push pins.

Your can search just about any web site in google using something like this

remove front bumper site:forums.corvetteforum.com

Put the term that you are searching instead of front bumper
