Re: The Dime Back Under The KnIfE! 56k...Very Doubtful

I didnt take n e pics of me doin the front.

Started shaving my front bumper yesterday. I cut the bolt heads off, put the square in the square n tacked em in. I used square nuts for the middle holes, since they r not for support. Here r sum pics.








Thought id throw these in...no fronts..kinda fug.lol.



Thats where i am as of now. I stopped on er early cause i went fishin.lol. But ima do more on er today...gringing, supporting, and smoothing.
Any suggestions or comments are more than welcome on any of my projects to come. EnjoY!

Thanks yall. I have thought about shaving them, but i kinda like the look of the signal in there, so i decided to leave them.

Welp, got the bumper smoothed the rest of the way out yesterday. The only thing left to do is paint my brackets and my frame in the front...n shes ready to go back on. Here r sum pics.

Welded washers on to support the bolts, then welded the bolts to the washers. Here r sum pics of them half welded on...yes i know the welds look kinda sucky in this pic.


Grinding the welds down.


Smoothing with body filler



Primed n smoothed! Shes is shaved n almost ready.

Nah, its not a dent. Its made like that...that is where you are supposed to mount your front license plate. There were 2 holes there for it too that i shaved, and i molded the hump down at the top so it looks a bit better.

Re: The Dime Back Under The KnIfE! 56k...Very Doubtful

Welp, I finished up the bumper and went ahead n shaved my antenna this weekend. Got it all finished up in a day. First time ive ever shaved anything, so i dont guess i did too bad for a first. I got a bunch of pics. Check em out n lemme know what yah think.










Went ahead n painted behind the grill while it was all off.


Since in gettin clears soon, i painted my markers black all but a strip just to see what it would look like. When it lights up at night it looks sick...kina like a LED bar.




Everything back on n washed up. Quality suck i know, it was gettin dark.



Thats where i am so far, ill b starting on more stuff soon.
