2001 Solara SE V6 3.0
Couldn't find an aftermarket bumper so I made one lol. Also installed a stainless steel exhaust tip.
I didn't have to shave anything on the strut bar, hell I didn't even fully remove it for this job just 3 nuts and turned it to use as hanger, it presses against the hood when closed though.That strut bar...did you have to shave off a bit that goes around the strut tower? Looks like you did, only asking because I bought one last week and had to do the same thing - went at it with a file for around 15 mins filing away the bits that couldn't clear the flange. Only had to do it on the left side of the bar though, probably because the car may have been hit somewhere in the right fender knocking things off slightly.
