bumpers and mounting

Post by Ddcimino on Thu Feb 09, 2017 12:03 pm

Hey guys, I'm putting bumpers on my car, I know about the spacers but what bumpers do I buy and what do I use for the bumper supports that mount to the bumpers and bolt to the bolt through the spacers to the frame. I have a leaf spring car if that makes a difference.
Thanks

New bumpers can be found on the MG Magic website.

Brackets are also on there. Not sure if they are the same. I have some brackets that I can measure and send photos if you need that info.

Hope the info helps.

Greg, I received my bumpers and mounting brackets but the holes to mount to the car are centered at 24" I need them to be at 29" any suggestions?

I plan to bolt a flat bar about 32 - 34 inches long with holes to match the mounting width of the frame to the car mounts and drill holes on 29 inch center to bolt the bumper brackets to.  I plan use the same size steel stock as the brackets as it is pretty robust.

This is the only picture I found where you can kinda see the brackets. Hope it helps! There is a weird bendy V-shape at the end that reaches the two mounting holes.

I think the brackets are right maybe its the bumper. I bought the MGTD front bumper it may be the back one that I need.
