    From memory.
    The 6 or 8 (year dependent) main bolts are M10 X 25mm flange bolts.
    The 2 small rear bolts are M8 X 20mm flange bolts.

    Edited for accuracy.

    There are fixings for the bumper to sump guard, but what fixings are used depends on the year of the vehicle. There were several changes to the bumper and sump guard over the years, so you have to get the correct guard for the year of vehicle, or the bumper fixings won't line up.

    Two bolts under the bumper, skinned knuckles needed to fit!
    I'd get a cheap tap and die set and clean the threads out before you fit it.

    thanks again, i'll get the bolts sorted and wing it for the screws, got plenty around, on a different note my FL also came with Land Rover front and top rear light guards (pre facelift) but not fixings, are sets available? i'm guessing just longer screws and some sore of packer for the rears but the fronts which need gromments/rivnuts?

    The rear light guards are fitted with longer screws, which I found in stainless for mine. I'll see if I can find the specs of them.

    The front are pinned with the 2 molded in pins, and screwed on through the 2 holes.

    There are spacers too, but those should be easy to fabricate/cobble together.

    Not meaning to be pedantic or anything, but its two M10 bolts at the front of the sump guard, and two M8 bolts at the back, six bolts total.

    There are 6 M10 bolts, and 2 M8 bolts.
    And a variety of different fixings for the training edge of the front bumper. ;)

    I presume the OP as the whole alloy sump guard as here below, i modified mine so only the plastic part of the guard needed to be removed when doing an oil change etc, which left the alloy outer frame in situ.

    Ah! I forgot about the original one... I've replaced my plastic section with an aluminium plate welded onto the original frame.
