    Front Bumper Mod

    Ok here are all the pictures I have on the bumper mod, if this don't cover it let me know what you need I can take more pictures.

    What I did is put tape on the bumper to get the shape I wanted. Took it off cut it and repeated this process until I got the look I wanted. Once the bumper was finished I took a straight line right to the wheel flares and cut them off. I then cut the wheel well off but curved the cut to get it out of view. I used mostly my jig saw and my dremel tool thats it.

    I've loved the look and had tons of compliments since I've done the mod right after you did it. Great Idea Sal!
    I've been out at sea for a month and there are quite a few new threads on the site. Can't wait to put in my 2 cents in on most of em. Have fun.

    Cutting the bulk out is pretty easy and quick but cleaning up the cuts and finalizing the lines takes a little time.
