Bumper Mod

Well i finally got around to mounting my free c4c fog lights. It started with cutting 2 large holes and getting some pipe the right size and welding them in and making some tabs on the back. I really like how it came out. it should get painted tomorrow but not sure yet.

That came out really good man. I would smooth the welds out and paint the bumper though (it kind of looks like you did paint it but I can't tell)

no i haven't painted anything yet its to cold, thats the plan for tomorrow i need to go get a new softer wheel for my grinder to smooth everything out better. but i started at 10 this morning and stopped for a little while and went back too it. Im going to by buddy's collision shop so i can paint it in the warm its like 20* here right now so painting isnt going to happen out side. im really happy with the way it came out for the first time i have ever tired something like this. now i just need to get my brush guard mounted

I'd hit it with a 40 grit flapdisc, then a 80 grit. Fill the undercut voids with some plastic filler, sand smooth, spray the rattle can!


Looks good Downey. Pretty neat idea for those with Gen3's. Are you able to aim them?

they are decent right now aimed wise but i can adjust them if i want. but i dont think im going to do anything other than get paint on it right now. i think the in the spring i will blast the whole bumper and have my buddy spray and clear it but its just getting rattle can for right now
