Remove Front Bumper

Has anyone removed the front bumper? Is it bolted on? Welded on? It looks like it is bolted on, but I want to know for sure before I tear into the car..

Please note, I am not talking about the front bumper cover (plastic) or the foam absorber. I am talking about the actual painted bumper that is behind both the foam absorber and cover.

Thanks!

I believe that is bolted... i can't say for sure but people do remove that for engine work and such... so i'd assume its removable.

It is bolted on - 4 in the middle and 2 on each side, along with a single in each wheel well. You are not going to like that last pain in the ass bolt on each side. It is WAAY the hell up in there.

Wow, this woulda been helpful. I thought it was spot welded to the frame on a few spots. Good to know!

My bumper is slightly bent because of an accident and I was wondering, since it is welded on, and I do not have any welding equipment, what might be the best way to straghten it out? I was thinking I might be able to use a BFH to restraighten.
