FBM550V Installation Instructions | NoviStretch™

NoviStretch™ Front Bumper Mask


Step #1

Clean the bumper and surfaces under the car and the fender wells thoroughly (tar and grease remover is recommended).

Step #2

Turn the front wheels to gain easier access to the fender liner mounting screws that you will be replacing.

Step #3

Locate the mounting screws at the edge of the bumper inside the fender liner and remove them. Replace each one as you go with the supplied snap-head screw studs. Repeat this step on the other side of the car.

Step #4

Begin the installation by fastening the snaps on one end of the mask to the screws just installed on the edge of the bumper.

Step #5

Stretch the mask across the front of the bumper and attach to the other side of the car. Note: the tension in the mask is normal and important to the overall performance of the product.

Step #6

Pull the bottom edge of the mask down under the bumper, noting the position of the snaps on the bottom edge of the mask. Replace the screws on the bottom of the bumper that best align with the snaps on the mask with a snap head screw stud. Fasten the snaps on bottom of the mask to the screws just installed on the bottom of the bumper.

Step #7

Locate and slightly loosen the screw holding the corner of the air dam on each side of the car allowing the bottom edge of the mask to go between the bumper and the air dam. Note: Do not install mask over the air-dam.

Step #8

Open the hood and holding the top of the mask pull it up to the hood opening and secure the open strap on the mask on each corner of the mask over the tab along the body frame.

The NoviStretch™ FBM550V mask is easily secured using snap fasteners integrated into the design. This requires snap-head screws, supplied in the hardware kit, be installed on the car as described below. The initial installation should require approximately 15 minutes to complete. After setup the mask can be easily installed and removed in just under one minute.

The FBM550V is designed for installation on all 1997-2004 C5 Corvettes.
