    Ran Into a Snag Pulling Motor

    Hello,

    So I have decided to pull my motor through the top, and what a pain. I knew this was not going to be easy. So here is my problem. The engine hoist that I purchased doesn't clear the front plastic bumper on my '99 Camaro. How would I take off the front bumper.

    How about putting a couple of flat spares tires on the front to make the car sit lower?

    How do I take off the bumper cover. Fortunetly I cant get the lift in there to pull the motor out. Stupid hydraulic cylinder hits the tip. of the plastic piece

    And where would i place my spare set of rims to lower the car onto.
