Glad to see my bodywork on the bumper turned out ok after taking a few inches off each side and welding it back up. Looks a little sportier

[img][/img] This is what is was prior to painting it. For the past 6 weeks I've had my dad's car in my garage doing all sorts of mechanical and cosmetic work to it to get it to where you see it now. sanding sanding and more sanding...It was just a budget paint job done in my garage obviously but I'm very happy with the results! I think he paid about 500 bucks total, which is way more than I even paid when we did mine with the same paint.

We just used a single stage paint. No base/clear coat. Shot it with one light coat of primer sealer. Let sit for 15 mins. Then shot it with 2 medium wet coats of paint. Done. No buffing or color sanding. I'm pretty happy with it and I know he's estatic to have it back to it's original paint scheme, and just painted again period. lol

Thanks! I know it's not even a 4 figure paint job but it was a lot of work and I think it paid off in the end. And yes it looks even better in person. As far as cutting the bumper you can do that yourself easily enough. On his he kept the inner shell and shock absorber mounts. All I did was tak about a 2 1/2 or 3" section out of the ends right before where it wraps around the sides. And underneath I just cut the ends off the inner shell to make room for it to be more narrow. So the bumper still bolts to the shell inside and everything else is the same. Btw I used a saw zaw to make the cut and still got a 99.5% straight cut on the bumper so when we butted them up to weld it matched up perfectly.

that is awesome. the fact that its not a 4 figure job is what I like. I am all about the deals and budget builds. heck I was even thinking about rolling mine. I've saw a few that turned out pretty nice. I have a spare bumper I may try it on some time. its not the cutting I am so worried about, but the welding. I have done some sheet metal years ago that turned out ok, but this is a bit different.
