Re: Euro-spec bumper trim

Type 44 Euro bumper stuff is a whole different approach, not simply
metal vs. plastic.  For example, the metal trim bolts to the bumper, not
the body. You would need to grind the mounting studs off the body
panels and repaint in the rear.  Next, the shapes and lengths of the trim
pieces are all different due to entirely different shape of Euro bumpers.
It goes on and on.  No simple swap. Be happy with plastic.
