Default So...who has time for a new bondo project? *pics*

I was looking at my front bumper today and thought this would look pretty cool, so I did a rough photoshop on the pic...I think one of us BE guys should tackle this project **slowly backs away**

before:


after:


so, one of you guys get to it!

That looks pretty good actually. though, you'll never get to access the tow hook up front.
plus, if i stuff it into another snow bank this year @ winter drving school (or out screwing around ), i think the bondo would crack. I wonder if glassing it would be better?

fibuz, remember what happened to your grill.

I wish my license plate bolt holes weren't full of rust residue, or I'd take my front plate off.

Any idea if the bottom gap actually serves a purpose? I always through it looked goofy there by itself.

yeah, you're probably right. I wonder how well fiberglass would adhere to the plastic on the bumper...I really need to work on fiberglassing again, but every project I try turns into a mess.

it forces air up into your FMIC, duh! Oh, wait. Nevermind, no purpose besides additional airflow to teh radiator.

Is the radiator even down that low? I don't think it is. I be the grille gives sufficient cooling, no?

Yeah, I'm positive that the grill is sufficient air flow, but if you stick your hand in the little center air vent thing in the bumper you can see how it directs air up towards the radiator versus horizontally back.

Maybe its to push air below the bumper beam to the section of the radiator that is below that beam?
