Default Over riders - cut in or cut out?

OK guys, got myself a couple of over riders from an Austin A35 and have to decide how to fit them to the PT.

First option is to cut/grind the inside profile of the over riders to fit over the PT bumper... second option is easier but scarier - couple of saw slots in the bumper and fit the over riders into them...

Which way's best?


Arthur



PS - for bumper read fender

Sorry, but unless you have the right kind of bumper, I don't think the over-rider would look right on the PT Bumper. If you had something like Basett Hound (pic below), that the over-rider would fit right on.



There's also a woman in my Tampa Bay club that had them on a chrome bumper that fits her theme to a T.

Hmm. These are small and rather tasteful I thought... maybe a mock-up before I cut in to anything would be a good idea!

OK, now I'm confused... why don't you call them fender guards? I thought bumper was British! I would call them bumper guards too but put overriders so you people would know what I meant (fat lot of good *that* did me though )

Divided by a common language indeed

Fenders go over your tires/wheels. Bumpers are on the front and rear of the car. Never heard of over riders myself.
