    Primed with one coat of NS5, then two coats of NS4 and once it is properly dry, two coats of a hammerite finish.

    I was under the impression that Hammerite did not require priming if painting more than one coat. Perhaps I am wrong, but the stuff I hammerited, which includes my very had-used transfer and bash plates as well as diff guard (all designed and manufactured by our own Mr. Connan) is still fine many years down the line.

    Anyways, I digress. The bumper looks awesome... Well done.

    Hammerite ≠ NS4/5

    One is a Durham product the other is... well hammerite.

    NS4/5 is also water based vs oil based on the hammerite.

    It's what I have in the garage...

    Some of that DTM stuff, or rattle cans of spray paint. I think the rougher finish lends itself to my somewhat average welding...

    You can put the DTM straight on bare metal but I've had better results with using primer first.

    And yes, the holes for the number plate holder are not symmetrical, had a brain fart there. Fortunately it will be hidden by the number plate and there's enough play in the holder to put it in the middle.

    Ian, remeber that here where we are lucky enough to live, we just don't even know what the word corrosion means. The okes by the coast have much bigger issues.

    Nicle, that's looking proper!

    Anyone know what the recommended tightening torque for the recovery points on the front is? It's two M12 fine thread bolts. I'm guessing around 120 Nm?

    It's not in the service manual as far as I can see.

    It will depend on the grade of the fastener, somewhere between 95 for 8.8 and 160 for 12.9. If the grade is not known, I would err on the lower side.

    It shouldn't matter all that much anyway, as long as they are tight enough not to work loose. Most of the "operational" loads on the bolts would presumably put the bolts in shear.

    They're 8.8 M12 X 1.25.

    Specs I've seen range from 88 to 100 nM.

    I'll go for 95
