hat tip; for creativity and having some balls
Thanks Snowy

I was happy that I was able to fill up my bumper opening with mine:
I'd love to get my hands on a Viggen bar. They are like "chicken lips" around here

From looking at crashed version it looks to me like the protection is in the crumple zones, not the crash bar itself. Ah whatda I know though.
I agree, It's still pretty solid. I know that it's not as solid as It would be if it was standard, but still it's solid.
If I ever have a front end smash I dont really think my little cut out is going to make a difference. The front end would be screwed in both cases.
But as Drew said, "Ah whatda I know though".
