Since you are leaving off the bumper, take off the front support and the passenger seat.

Very nice. Can't wait to see it back on the car.

My bumper is also off the ///M right now. Trying a little something new since I've already filled my reflector and license plate holes. I'll post pics ASAP. I get it back tomorrow.
