Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Installed my new Futofab bumper tonight. A bit tricky - when I installed the brackets, the bumper would not mount as the bolts on the bumper were not aligned. The holes on the brackets were wider than bolts on the bumper. It wasn't a large difference, but enough that it would not mount without modif...

Re: Back in the 510 game

Took the picture about three weeks ago... Haven't been able to drive much since then given how much rain we've had but I like getting it out for a rip as often as I can :^).

Thanks,
