Rear bumper MK 2 to fit Mk 3

Post by kelvingenders » 02 Jan 2012 09:18 am

Just wondering..... after wrecking my my 1987 GLT rear bumper with pain stripper, could I put a 1985 spec rear bumper on it? Does it use the same fitting/brackets....Can anyone help

Hi Kelvin.
The brackets will be the same.
Cheers Mark.

Yep I agree MK 3 are better than MK 2......but dissolved and damaged rear bumper. Is the front bumper also interchangeable? :360:

Now am i being stupid, or when you swap from a mk2 FRONT bumper to a mk3 front, do you have to change the bumper irons too? I just tried to put my spare mk3 onto my mk2, and it wasnt having it. Or is it just me? I did take out the little extra strip from the under the lights too :roll:
