That would be so fun! I love welding and working with metal. It is the only thing I can see myself doing and actually having fun doing it! Besides flying. But I can do both!

Right coast all the way haha!

Here's an idea of the cut outs that will be on the facets of the bumper. I was bored today since my truck is in the shop so I messed around in a sketching program on my ipad. This was just to see if they'll look good. I think they will! Also on the actual bumper the corners of the cut outs will be ever so slightly rounded.



The bigger ones on the wings will be the holes used for the fog lights. I wanted to retain the stock fog lights, so they will sit just behind these holes and a metal mesh will go just in front for protection. More to come soon! (Actual metal work)

Cam since your so good at messin with those programs can you try making the openings for the fog lights square so something like a 3" square LED would fit right in? Just wondering what it would look like.

Haha you got it! (Working out the logistics of starting my own small fab shop in the very near future for us east coastians )

And thanks guys! I'm bummed I can't work on it this week... Next week, assuming my truck is fixed, I'll be tackling the rest of the good stuff!

Cam, being in New England, the more holes you put in your bumper, the more area you get for salt spray to get at things like coilovers. Overall, I like the build, can't wait to see it when it's done!
