Step 1:

Undo the inner fender wells to gain better access to the back of the bumper. Remove the clips along the side with a flat top screw driver.

Use a flexible measuring tape to measure the desired point on bumper and fender.

Mark the locations on your bumper and fender.

Step 2:

Use a small size pilot bit to make a tiny hole in the middle of the X mark.

Step 3:

Get the correct bit size of the screws in your Quick Bumper Release Fasteners package.

Drill a bigger hole.

Use a paint pen to paint the edges of the hole so they don't rust.

Step 4:

Secure the support and screw into the bumper and fender.

Place your hand where you opened the fender so you can hold on to the nut and tighten it up.

Put some rubber sealant to preserve the fasteners.

Step 5:

These Quick Release Bumper Fasteners give this Subaru STi a great look for the track and installation is very straightforward.
