Rear Bumper

As i'm awaiting for the new wheels to turn up I thought it was about time to replace the rear bumper chrome that had been damaged. (Not me)

I have already replaced the front centre chrome piece, so I know this is going to be a dog to change!! I sourced a new bit of chrome on Ebay for the sum of 40 pounds about 3 months ago lol.
After removing the old piece of chrome, I could see that the rear bumper has taken quite a knock and it would be better to replace it, rather than to waste time trying to fix it!

Going to make a call to the trusty people at Howard's Car Spares. I will have to get Chris at Motor World Car Body Shop Ltd to give me a hand getting it off, as the bolts holding the bumper on, are on really tight!
It won't budge, even with all the will in the world, I feel I am more likely to shear the socket off the wrench.. lol

Hi, saw this post on removing the rear chrome strip, and was wondering how you managed to get it off? I've taken the plastic thing off the top and removed the screws underneath that, but can't figure out how to remove the set of screws furthest towards the back of the car? I can see the bottom of them when I look underneath the car, but how are you supposed to get to the screwheads to remove them??
