Thanks HC

I'm sure you're right. I am only too familiar with the joys of body clips ...

^ Thanks, ST.

Will do.

[Edit]

Have done. I see what you mean!

So either fit some surface mount LED indicators, or slightly modify some convenient parts of the new bar, and fit inset indicators. Not a big deal, either way.

We also don't have periodic inspections here in Victoria, so the next inspection will be when my estate flogs the car ...

[End edit]

On the Subaxtreme web they have YouTube video guides for fitting the bar. It misses a few steps but will give you the basics.
The hardest part is removing the OEM bumper.
I had a look at your build thread, and see that your series I SG bar has indicator/parking lights fitted. SubaXtreme seems to have dumped this with the series II bar??

BTW, I watched the SubaXtreme video. They do gloss over quite a bit ... :-(

^ OK, I've watched the SubaXtreme video a couple of times now.

Will someone please tell me that this great chunk of cast alloy and pipes is held in place by something a little stronger than some body clips ... ...

I assume that the Support Bar is what gives it a little more strength but I am not sure?? The Bullbar on my SF bolts directly into the chassis beside the radiator support.

On this one it looks like the Support Bar is what bolts to the chassis and then the Bullbar "skin" bolts onto the Support Bar - but I may be wrong!

Yep, looks that way to me,
the reo is what gives the main support into the chassis rails, and the alloy skin is for bumping into roos.

you con'd want to be slipping a rope around the top-hoop of the bar and pulling things over

That's what it looked like to me.

I would have thought that a couple of 8~10 mm HT bolts through the skin of the bar and that reinforcement bracket wouldn't have hurt anything. With some insulating grommets and washers, of course.

Hi RB

The hoop (loop) or whatever it is is bolted onto the bar. The bar itself is bolted onto support bar by 6 of 12mm bolts. You use your car mounting point for the support bar. So what you need are 6 of each 12mm bolt, nut to fit, flat washer and spring washer (high tensile).

Cheers.
