Transporting Bumper - Will It It Fit?!
Posted 13 November 2012 - 02:22 PM
I'm looking to pic up the bumper as soon as I can and I'm pretty pushed for time, as always, so just wondering if I could arrange to go get it tonight in my own car or if I'd need to get a van to go lift it, or even use my brother's Mk3 Mondeo hatch.

Back seats down and parcel shelf out the way. Fit straight in. May have to bend it slightly to curve it round but won't damage it.
Did it a few times myself, when I took my ST bumper to my brother inlaws to have somewhere to fit it, then when I took my old bumper back, then when I had to take my old bumper to nottingham.
Thinking about it, if you look on this photo you can see me old bumper in the back of me car:

Think I might have had the front passenger seat pushed and folded forward too (mine being a 3 door) and had the bumper from there to the back driver side corner of the boot.
Right, fingers crossed this guy is available some time between 6 (hometime) and 9 (Homeland time)!

Sal, we get it on a Tuesday at 9 over here on the RoI's state broadcaster RTE. It often gets American shows on first play before the UK...not sure how or why, but I'm not gonna question it! Cracking show.
Have arranged to get my spoiler on Saturday...have the replacement bits gathered up (spoiler from ebay, washer from Ford, and plug from Clive is on it's way...thanks!), so, like collecting this front bumper, it was just a matter of finding a time that suits to do it.
I'm in the seller's vicinity on Saturday morning for an airport run, so meeting him after then zipping back down the road in time for my match on Saturday avo. Couple of hundred miles driving ain't gonna do the legs any favours mind!

Back on topic, the amount of furniture from Ikea that has been in my focus I would be shocked if you couldn't fit a mere Bumper in

Have heard of a few sites for watching tv series on so will check that one out. To be honest, there aren't many shows that I really buy into, and find myself too busy for most of them, but Homeland has me gripped through the season and a bit so far.
I think The Wire was the best show ever made, better than Sopranos for me, so find it hard to watch anything these days without ending up sayin, 'but it's not as good as The Wire'! Homeland's definitely a must watch for me at the minute though. And at the risk of sounding a bit old-fashioned, there's something I like about having 9pm on a Tuesday to look forward to!
Breaking Bad is coming very highly recommended to me at the minute, anyone seen it? Maybe this should be in it's own 'off-topic' thread, haha!

Excellent period drama about prohibition and gangsters.

Had Season 2 recorded as well and went through about 2 or 3 episodes a night to finish it before Season 3 started. Was sitting up to all hours and like a zombie then in work, but it was worth it!
I know it's still relatively early but Season 3 is a bit of a let down for me so far, just hasn't caught light yet I suppose. Owen Slater's accent's not bad to be fair to him, but some of the ones when they visited the Emerald Isle were bleak. Sounded perfect mind you compared to some that I've heard in Sons of Anarchy...embarrassing! Must have done their research by watching Richard Gere in The Jackal repeatedly. Jeez there have been some awful attempts at it now I come to think of it, haha!

Like you say though, season 3 is a bit of a slow burn to start with.
