Really nice job on that bumper!! Looks great, and it'll be fantastic once you get the powdercoating done, I'm sure.

I live in Homosassa well i wanna get a meet started and go ride around the game reserve up here there's some pretty fun trails specially if its wet makes it a lil more enjoyable. maybe by then i can have all the finish grinding done and at least painted probably not powder coated
