Replacing the Front Deformation Panel

Postby Snowmark » 25 Oct 2018, 11:40

What are the options for replacing the front deformation panel behind the front bumper?

People have mentioned that there is an aftermarket panel available but I can’t seem to find one. If not, I guess it’s finding a decent body cut?

The vertical panel is ok I just have rust all along the seam on the horizontal portion where the rain water sits.

That's the crossmember behind the deformation member , its still available as a genuine part but its spot welded to the deformation member so best go for the cut to save a lot of work.

Thanks both. David, I’m just down the road - is it in decent condition and how much would you like for it?
