Those in Hatch Nation have seen this already. Its still a work in progress and needs some touch up. Was supposed to pick up an SVT lip to go on it today also, but it didn't work out. Nevermind how dirty the car is.

I wonder how it would look with the fogs installed? I like the shave I had to look at it a couple of times to see the custom work.

I am going to keep an eye out for a cheap set. Not sure if I would like it or not cause I think the stock bumper looks better without. And I think the inserts flow well with my Ghia grill.

And here is the original piece.

Plastic weld, and made "braces" out of a scrap part of the bumper.



Then you are going to want to get a urethane filler. I got some from Pivco. Just don't get the super fast hardening, it will be hard before you get done filling it and you cant work with it at all. But it sands pretty easily. I used Bondo to smooth it out, but used very little hardener to keep it flexible. Yes I know you aren't supposed to use it so you don't need to tell me.

Cost me $35 at the u-pull. The blue one was so damaged that he didn't even charge me for it. The filler was $30 for a tube and I used the whole thing.

What the odds of finding a SVT at junk yard that still has both bumpers. Last time I was a pick n pull they had three sedans and they had been picked clean in less than a week. I'll keep my fingers crossed lol.
