Default Long Shot - Need bumper core measurments

Whats up guys, haven't posted in a very long time! I've been in CO the past 2.5 years, but I'm driving back to Maine for Memorial Day weekend. After the long weekend, my cars coming back to Colorado with me!



I'm flat towing the car back. Pulling the DS and letting her roll. Already picked up a quality tow bar (not fixed). What I need is to fabricate brackets to mount to the car. Hard to do when the cars 2000+ miles away and my shop is here. Can't find a front bumper core on craigslist either.



I need to know the distance between the mounting plates that bolt to the frame rails. And I need to know the spacing between the bolts. I'd like to have this thing fabricated before I get home. That way I can show up at the storage barn, pull the bumper cover and bumper core, bolt up the tow bar and roll away.



Hopefully someone has an S13 front bumper core laying around they wouldn't mind putting a tape measure too for me! Thanks

I'm measuring 32" (or maybe a hair shorter... 31 7/8") in between the bumper support frames that attach to the frame rails. Hopefully you hear from someone with a bumper support that's off, because measuring with the support on and trying to make my way around my intercooler setup wasn't ideal... but at least this will get you started

Also stripping an 02' Silverado with a 5.3L to bring back to CO with my 240sx!

No worries and nice!

I got a chance to measure again. I'm feeling good about 32", and the center to center distance on the bumper support bolt/hole is about 4 3/8". I would recommend maybe drilling one on each side first (and then you can do the other on site with the actual car)
