Front Bumper Frame and Brackets

Step 1

Retrieve your Front Bumper assembly from the previous stage and set it upside down on a soft surface. Route all of the wiring towards the left end of the Bumper, as shown.

NOTE: You may notice that I replaced my stock scanner circuit board with the Brickstuff Scanner Upgrade in these pictures.

Step 2

Cover the center section of wiring with the Small Cable Grip and secure it into the appropriate posts with two (2) AM screws.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 2

Route the wiring at the left end of the Bumper between these two posts, then cover them with the Large Cable Grip and secure it into place with two (2) more AM screws:

Step 3

Fit the Front Bumper Inner Frame to the matching posts on the back of the Front Bumper, orienting it as shown:

Secure this Inner Frame to the Bumper with four (4) GM screws:

Step 4

Fit the Left Front Bumper Bracket (marked ‘L’) to the left end of the Front Bumper Inner Frame, orienting it as shown:

Secure the Bumper Bracket to the Inner Frame with two (2) BP screws:

Step 5

In the same way, fit and secure the Right Front Bumper Bracket to the right end of the Inner Frame with two (2) more BP screws:

Thoughts


I believe our Front Bumper assembly is now complete! Keep it stored safely as it will be attached to the Body in a later stage.
