Front Bumper Project

So here's my 3D rendering of my bumper idea. I'm not a graphical engineer by any means, I found a program called google sketchup and I came up with this. The light openings are on one side to see what it looks like with and the other side without. The inset in the center is for the license plate.

I mentioned in another project post that summer is around the corner here in AK and I don't plan on spending a lot of time in the garage, so this may be slow going. But, I'll post up pics as things progress (hopefully).

As far as finish goes, NAPA has a cool spray on that's much like rhino liner. It's inexpensive, can be done in your garage, and they'll color match too!

I'll be doing a rear bumper along the same design as well as sidesteps. The bumpers will be color matched blue and the sidesteps color matched to the lower trim color. Should look........... SCHWEET?

As mentioned in the OP, it has lights on one side just to see what the looks like with lights and the other side without.

Air vents for.....?

Thanks Hank, we'll see how it goes.

Looks good, it reminds me of an IronBull bumper that I've seen. Good mock up!
