    Thanks for the reply Dave. I will take a look at the MSA bumpers while in LA, but not get them. I really like your bumpers and will likely hold off until your powder coated ones are available.

    The octane numbers are not the same. Europe uses RON while the US uses (RON+MON)/2. 98 octane in Germany is the same as 93 octane in the US.

    Thanks for linking my bracket drawing Carl. It was easy to make and only needed a few short welds which I had a friend do since I didn't have a welder at the time. I bought the steel at Home Depot.

    I don't know EU values, but that car seems like it is way overpriced. That would be a $2000 car in the states.
