Fitting OEM RS2 Bumper to Audi 80...

So I've got me a OEM RS2 bumper at the weekend that needs some TLC in the paint department before it goes on the front of my 80 Sport ( ) But before I start, I was wondering has anyone here fitted one to a standard Audi 80 and if so how did they go about it...

I think you will find its like pushing two magnets together! No way will an RS2 bumper want to be fitted to your 80!

Well that's what I was hoping for, though I read from some other threads that there is difference in the depth between the two...

Be sure to add pictures after you've fitted it.

Here's a pic of the RS2 mounting bracket. The part on the left (with the welded nut) mounts inside the rectangular channel on the RS2 bumper. I attached both parts together temporarily so they wouldn't get separated.

Heres a couple of pictures of the offending article... As the more shape eyed may notice there are a few bits missing that I will have to fabricate or replace from the original 80 bumper...

I have'nt taken the bumper off the car yet, but I think it has a bolt fixing that is the exact opposite to that shown, eg straight up rather than horizontal as on the RS2...

Looking at the pictures you have posted, is it fibreglass?
