Well lets just start by stating that I got a great deal on a crappy bumper. As warned the thing continuously bottomed out and in a matter of hours was damaged enough that I was ready to trash it. Or...

Hack it up and make it work.
So after careful calculation, and a long ponder, I finally bought a can of bondo fiberglass gravy and some other stuff, and hacked the thing into about 10 pieces and am now putting my puzzle of a bumper back together.

What I'm trying to do is raise it in the front about 1 1/4" and open up the front openings 1 1/4" so that more of the inter cooler gets direct air.

My goal is to do all of this and still have a bumper that doesn't look like arse.

here's what it's going on.


and here is what the bumper looked like before:


Here is what Iv'e done so far:








That's how far i've gotten, I hope to finish this before new years because I'll be going back to work and not have time. The carnage look's pretty bad but I'm still optimistic. Just thought that this thread might help me get of my butt and finish it up.

Damn, that looks good in the pics! Any Bondo stuff I've attempted has always looked kinda "wavy" once I primed it...
