    bumper or bonnet bad fit

    Just bought this ZR.
    It was involved in a small accident a few years ago and the bumper assembly was replaced.
    Something doesnt fit right.
    What do you reckon guys, is it easily fixable?

    Looking at the photo, i'd say it was the bumper that's sagging down.
    Should be easy to solve, take it off and have a look behind it, it may be something simple
    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence.

    I think i have this same problem. its pushed out so far so you got gaps and its the crash bar is not the right one.

    would like a fix for this if its the same problem

    That's normal MG/R panel gap !

    To get it fitting as best it can, loosen all bolts (top, sides, and bottom) jack the bumper up where you think it should sit, and then tighten all the bolts. Let go of the jack and cross fingers.
