hi guys, 

 

more confusion on the car i'm working on!

its had rear half the boot floor replaced and it looks like it has had the lower part of the rear panel too but its got the bumper lip sitting at a funny angle and the bumper mounting hols seem very close to the body. can someone give me a rough measurement of the bumper mounting hole to the boot hinge panel if they some time to spare!

 

cheers

A common problem is the bumper lip is repaired flat, it actually bends down from the rear panel, if it's flat the bumper catches the hinges.
