01-28-2013 11:49 PM rear bumper 1
Over the holiday break I started a couple of smaller projects- the rear bumper and fuel filler neck.

The rear bumper actually needs to be widened to fit my car, and I didn't have an extra. I narrowed my brackets and it sits much closer. I have now sourced one and can resume that soon

I got the other side installed this weekend, as well as worked on fixing my passenger fender lower area. There's a lot of issues here, and I'd replace the fender altogether if I hadn't already modified the wheel opening area so much.

I started to make my rear brake vents by welding in the scoops I made the other weekend. I used some metal rode to add thickness and strength to the quarter panel as I didn't want to leave it as a single piece of metal.

I hope to get the other side in next weekend.

I also started making my rear brake vents. So far I only formed some metal, but I will need to get the actual ducting I plan to use before I go further with it.

11-25-2012 08:22 PM Front bumper rebuild 6
I spent some time this weekend tweaking the front bumper even more. I think I'm finally set with the front bumper. I had to add material back to my lower bumper brackets as they seemed to be torquing it funny. It kept pulling the bumper to the left which made it go off center. Of course, getting the bumper finally set meant adjusting the hood again, and then that made the cowl panel not fit anymore, so I was back to square one with that. I had to hammer down my inner cowl panel to make the outer cowl panel sit level. Also, one corner is pinching so I had to trim it back. I'll weld it later.
