I've looked at other GTV's and my bumper seems to drop down slightly at the front, leaving a bigger gap than it should.
I tend to steam in and make things worse, so before I do any tips?

You will need a 10mm hex to removed the retaining bolt then a 5/8" hex to adjust the bush inside the front bumper mounts. Also, be sure that the front bumper mounts (underneath the front headlights) have not rusted through. This had happened to one of mine. I got a spare one from Autolusso.

I still have a slight gap (sagging in the middle), but its better than it was.

Mine seems to have had the adjusters replaced with regular nuts and bolts.

No wonder the bumper is all over the place. Damn bodging garage that sold me the car.
