TheRock's 997 Rear Bumper Cover Removal DIY Guide

OK...

I have had a few requests for this, and had some time to put this together.

I have covered this process briefly in other DIY's, but went in to greater detail here for those wanting to remove the bumper cover.

Good luck to you all. It is a pretty straightforward process, and I hope I documented and outlined it in a way that is easy to follow and logical!

Certainly, if you see opportunities to help others, or tips please post here for others.

As in the past, I host these on my personal web server, so if it gets a lot of traffic, it may flake out....so just try again until it works.

Enjoy, and let me know if it helps....

Thanks for your commitment to the DIY community. These documents come in hand and give the uncertainness, certainty.
