    Here is the finished bumper, I plan on one final fitting before sending it off for paint or powder coat.

    That is some very fine work.

    I have one of those in my short list to fit my work truck.
    Me thinks it is time to move it up to the top.

    Looks real nice - fits that truck.

    What thickness metal did you use for the 'skin'?

    That bumper is slick. I am glad you chose paint or powder coating. The Rhino Liner would not do your work justice. You may have said in one of your posts....how many hours do you have in the project from mock up to completion?
    Thanks,

    I wasn't really keeping track, just roughly adding up the time I spent on it it's real close to 25 hrs. If I ever did another one it would go much faster because I learned alot on this one LOL!!! The grinding and finish work took muuuuuch longer than the mock up and welding!
