if your bumper is scrap cut it off

if it's good enough to use again then a die grinder is the best way

I did mine a couple of weeks ago of the 4 bolts 1 came off OK , 2 snapped and I rounded a third , I hammered a bolt grip on it to remove it. .

I ended up removing both wings as well to paint the inner wings because once I fit it back I don't want to have to take it off again in a hurry ( all the lower wing bolts snapped as well ) .
