Then the bigger jobs started..... Tim did such an awesome job with the rear valance and bumper that I couldnt leave the front bumper dead stock. The idea was to tuck it in nice and tight and complement the rear bumper....turned out awesome. I'm not 100% sure yet, but my plan is to plate the bumper...maybe a brushed look....so the metal finnish had to be dead on....tons of work







And just for the record....if anyone wants to copy me...go right ahead

I'd also like to take the chance to thank Cris..

He's super busy with some really cool projects....much bigger projects with bigger budgets than mine, but he's taken time to help me out with my project and with the budget I have to work with. He's doing the best he can to give me the absolute best "bang for the buck" with the budget $$ I have to use for these modifications. I wish I had more $$ to have him do everything on the car I'd love to do.....

And before Weld jumps in here with some smart ass comment about how "cheap" I am.... STFU rich boy ....... love ya bro.....

Ned,

This is exactly what I have looking into, any other pictures?

Any time you want to send me a truckload of $$ I'm sure I can arrange to be home to sign for it

Mike... thats all the pix I have right now...maybe some more later this week. I do have a bunch from some 1st gen projects.... that area is different between the cars, so I couldnt do the exact same thing..plus some of them did the supports when the quarters were off too... you can email me direct and I can send you the pix...
