That's why I'm surprised it had the flaring issue cuz the donor bumper showed no signs of flaring in their photos. They don't do test fit, tweak, ,make revised mold, test fit again and so on. All they really did was just copy and produce with minor alteration needed for mold release.

As far as the video goes well I haven't see anyone even able to get close to that level of flexibility. If your bumper could do that then the stress cracks wouldn't be happening from it just being pulled in a little. I've seen regular fiberglass bumpers that you could bend a little and leave it that way without any cracks. Maybe they need to add more flex into the duraflex?

Still like the bumper though. The brackets are an easy fix. Now only concerned about the stress cracks and the possibility of them progressing into something worse. Curious to see if your remedy fixes the issue. Otherwise I may go the Pro DTM route since I like that bumper alot as well.

Keep us updated and don't forget the pics. Really helpful.
