I was able to get it pretty straight, not 100% but way better. Used a C-Clamp and the receiver on my truck to bend it back. I'm going to clean up the whole bracket and give it a coat of paint with some rattle cans. Debating if I should just stick with black or would it better to use white to blend in with the paint? Can't remember if any of the bracket can be seeing with the fig lights installed. Any of you guys know?

You really can't see it but to really make it disappear paint it flat black, remember paint don't stick to bare metal, use etching primer first.

Thanks. The bottom of front bumper cover does attach to this bracket correct? If so, does it attach with a bolt and nut or something else? Mine had been zip tied for the longest time ever so want to make sure I get the correct hardware to attach it correctly.

I need the brackets for sure and probably some of the hardware due to mine not being the correct stuff or missing. Not sure what all the rivets are for though.

I’m sure I drilled those rivets out and loosened everything in the picture removing a GT fascia to get to a headlight panel and fiberglass bumper thing.

I know my rear bumper cover has rivets on the bottom, there are four bolts with nut clips in the pic that likely would work.

This is as best as I can get the bracket straightened out. Have to test it out on the car.
