As long as the other car was a mini, as that would be the only acceptable circumstance for an Imp to commit suicide.

I made brackets up for a soft A bar by clamping the pieces in place and then removing and welding then away from the car it took a little longer but no problems, I used the holes for the front towing eyes as fixing points

I ended up taking the bumper off and doing the whole welding thing off the car. I did at one point have to reassemble on the front of the car to get the pitches right, before final welding but am well happy with my results.

As long as the earth for the welder is near the piece you are welding then

I only stick weld and I dont bother to disconnect anything either ... aint much I havent welded on .. and I aint never fried nuthin' yet (apart from a few cotton jerseys !! ...and the back of my lugs before I noticed)
