Looking for "How to remove the front bumper" thread

I can't seem to find the thread that gives good detail on how to remove the front bumper on an SS. I could've sworn I saw one at one time but can't find it now.

Anyone know of any links?

pretty easy!

1) use a flathead to remove the 6 tabs on top of the bumper.
2) use 10mm socket to remove 2 bolts on top of bumper (one on each side by the fender
3) use T-25 screwdriver/socket to remove 6 screws inside each fenderwell (3 front and 3 back)
4) use a flathead to remove the tabs holding fenderrwell in place
option: put the front on jackstands, remove the front 2 tires and remove fenderwells (makes job much easier)
5) use a 10mm socket to remove 4 bolts inside each fender (3 on the front and 1 on the side)
6) use a 7mm socket to remove 1 bolt that is vertical on the side of the fender near the sidemarker
7) when working on passenger side, disconnect wire harness
8) use a 10mm socket to remove 2 bolts on bottom of bumper

and slide it out away from the car and its off!

i've done it 3 times now and each time is quicker and quicker (best time: 20 minutes with hand tools)

My bumper is no longer aligned properly since I removed it. I took it off a while back to modify my DRL's and now the hood isn't lined up with the bumper.
