Custom Bumper Build (Pics)

So I finally started building my bumper mostly from scratch but I did borrow some ideas from things I have seen. Hope you enjoy.

Does anyone know where I can get a block heater plugin that would act similar to a trailer plugin with a flap and such?

Also does anyone know where to get red shackles that would slide over my 1" thick flat bar. With hopefully a 1" pin.

Looks good man. Did you do anything to your grill like paint it. It looks a little darker than stock. I want to paint mine so it's not grayish. What did you use

That would be a good buddy to have. Ive thought about lining it with the same stuff as my rockers and bumper. Just because it is actually fairly smooth and stays nice and black. I've also heard that you can reduce the liner therefore make it spay a lot more smooth. But I don't know maybe I'll just find a harley grill haha

i Herculined my black steps on the side a year or so ago and they came out decently smooth, but wasn't really black, more like a dark grey. maybe the sun has just faded them some

I used raptor by upol on my steps and rockers. A year later and they are still black as the day I sprayed it. It's really amazing stuff.


But does anyone have any ideas on the shackle dilemma.
