    Good evening,

    I finally removed the unknown bumper (possibly a Pinto?) from the Maverick today.

    The bumper reinforcement was missing, but the strange thing to me are the mounting holes on the bumper mounts. They both are oriented with the holes to the left of center.

    Should they be both inboard or both outboard? Or is this correct?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you
    Jim P

    if you look at the mounting plates, the holes are to the left on both.
