You can actually just remove the two long bolts holding the whole assembly including the alloy beam as one piece. I found it a bit easier that way.

Lots of cleaning ahead for you, but its worth it.

Looking good so far.

Yeah I thought about that too. No joke about the cleaning. There is so much dirt in all the nooks and crannies. Its gonna take a while.

This part is fixed with rivets ( hope this is the right word ) under the middlepart.

Are people saying that the bumper face (rear PU) is rivetted to the reinforcement bar? And therefore the reinforcement bar should also be removed as per Pete's additional instructions above?

No need for that ! The rivets must be drilled out after removing the rear light middelpart ( carefull without braking the noses ... )

Let's assume you have a bone-stock 964 still having those 5 bumper rivets:
1) If you were of a mind to leave them in place, does someone know of a DIY "rivets stay in place" bumper removal thread?

or,
2) You drilled out the 5 rivets' heads for bumper removal. Is there a noticable sloppiness to the bumper upon its "no rivet" reassembly? (Or, any other downside?)
