Hi Robert,

As usual, your observational powers are correct.

Yes, the lower lumber is slowly being prepared to be "semi-permanently" mounted on the car with silicone adhesive.

Several days ago, the wood was trimmed here and there to fit under the bumper cover.

By using silicone adhesive, IF NECESSARY, it can still be removed, but will take a lot of digging/prying with a plaster knife.

The wood will be prepared for "permanent" mounting by drilling more through holes and mounting with lots of wood screws.

Jim.
