Default Bullbar fitment to MY19 Pajero

Hi All

I'm about to fit an MCC Falcon bar (707-02, 3 hoop) to my new Paj.
The instructions (photocopied and pretty ordinary!) show the fitment to a 2015 model, which has a different front bumper style.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience of fitting (any) bull bar to the latest model?
I know there will be some bumper cutting involved, but there are two chrome finish strips that run either side of the grille down the front of the bumper, which I'm a bit concerned about cutting correctly. The instructions don't really do a good job of showing where to cut (probably the most critical bit of the fitment!).
I've attached a pic to show what I mean.
Would appreciate any thoughts / comments!

Cheers

I can't help at all with the query mate, but would love to know the end result i've been considering doing the same thing.
FWIW those chrome strips are plastic on my 2016 model i found a website somewhere where you could buy replacements i could probably dig it up.

No worries - I'll probably tackle it next weekend so will put up a post-install report with some pics for anyone else looking to fit a bar onto the current model.

The MCC bar is unpacked (it was VERY well packaged! - took about 45 mins to unwrap...) and looks good. The only thing I did notice is the lack of edging strip for the bumper (to hide the cut edges). I recall seeing someone else's post regarding the MCC bars noting something similar.

Rather than use a pinch weld strip to cover the rough cut edge, just cut neatly and sand the face of the cut edge smooth. I did this 7 years ago when I fitted my bar, and I have not had to worry about pinch weld strip chaffing, falling off or looking daggy!

Love your posts OJ - let's bring back the word "daggy" - so very descriptive - classic Aussie stuff - but the true meaning may be lost on the youngsters ??

So, I fitted the bar at the weekend - the worst part was cutting the existing bumper, which was a real PITA and felt wrong somehow taking a grinder to a brand new car! I've attached a few pics to show the fitment, although I didn't take any of the bumper cutting as I was too stressed to stop to take pics...!
I'm happy with the final install, although I did end up using the pinch weld strip to cover up my 'handiwork'...!

The only thing I would say is that the MCC instructions were pretty ordinary (I ended up getting a pdf sent as the supplied photocopy was too feint to read) and the instructions for cutting the bumper out of date (and pretty vague even if fitting to an older model). The guys at MCC were helpful though.

Nice job, something satisfying doing these sorts of mods yourself

Also like how you levitated the front with the wheels off

Thanks for that - and the levitation trick does come in handy! (I actually had the stands waay back...!)
Really happy with the final install, although wish I had better plastic cutting skills and didn't have to use the pinch weld strip...
