Default SH9 Nudge Bar Install

So a while ago I bought a nudge bar off ebay (probably not the best start). I tried to install it myself, however it didn't come with any directions as to how to mount it, and I can't for the life of me find any mounting points under the car.

Has anyone done a similar thing and has any idea where the mounting points are for nudge bars?

Thanks

Unless you post pics it's too hard for us to help you out.
No I haven't bought one off ebay but I'm sure if you post some up we can help you out.

here are some photos of the bumper and the nudge bar. currently got a sump guard on, which may get in the way.

Do you have any more photos of the nudge bar?

Some like mine require you to remove the front bar to fit the brackets and then mount the bar.

I'm making one assumption that this nudge bar is a SubaXtreme one... You can also log in to their site and check it our there, you'll get what I mean re the bracket mounting...

Those mounting brackets look nothing like my subaxtreme brackets for my nudge bar.

That's mine, if you look carefully you can see it mounts through a gap in the bumper bar. I had to take the bumper bar off. Not hard, then take off this flimsy piece of metal bracking that's in front of the radiator and it's mounts sandwich behind this. Then you put the car back together and mount the nudge bar to the brackets poking out that lower gap.

Now mines a subaxtreme nudge bar. but I have seen ones on ebay the look like they mount the same way.

Thanks for that guys, didn't even cross my mind to take off the bumper. I'll give it a shot on the weekend and see how I go.

If it turns out the bar is an ECB (East Coast Bullbar) I have a soft copy of the fitting instructions somewhere in my computer at home.
