Ok, so it still needs Paint......

But otherwise, Done.....

It got a Winch in the Bumper like Old Skool......:) Will accept up to a 4700 lb Warn no problem
Also got 6 inch off-Road Lights, and a 3/16 6061 Alum skid Plate attached to Bumper.....
Came out looking very Sweet on a car with only slightly over 1000 road miles on the odometer......:D

We will be making a rear Bumper to match the front as soon as time allows...:slobber:

It can be seen here......we will get some better daytime outdoors pics ASAP.......:)

Ummm. . . John bent it and welded it, but there were 5 of us putting in ideas and stuff. It took at least 3 sets of eyes to get it all straight and stuff. John's buddy Mike deserves a big "You go Boy" for his badass mounting brackets. Mike also did most of the work keeping the angles right on the bends.

Randy did his fair share too. Pinch hitting for the late baby sitter.

It was Sean's idea to fill in the back of the bumper with the perferated steel. When he brought it up, we knew it was a killer idea.
Sean also had the idea with the lights so as to hide a big gap between the head light and the grill.

My big idea was to put the upper bar in front of the lower one by an inch or so. Very sexy!

The skid plate was a colaberation as well.


Extra special thanks to Paul Eklund for waking up fairly early Sunday morning to supply the spur of the moment "Primitive Racing" skid plate.

Yes Eric, this was truely Group effort......:)

This First one was done in basically 24 group hrs....;) if you add all individual Man hrs involved , you would end up around 100 hrs + give or take a few mins....:D

Now the Real Trick is to Duplicate it again......:eek:

Definitely a beauty John, we out-did ourselves bigtime. (toot toot) It was a big step doing this to an 04 Baha T!


They cool thing is, it all just bolts right on!!!! No mangling anything to get it to fit. Jut take off the bumper and its skin, add this bumper to the existing mounts.
Should you need to pick up the inlaws at the airport, the old bumper and skin will bolt right back on in under an hour. :D

The airbag sensors remains intact, untouched, unmoved. (I'm taking a stab to guess that you also managed to use the existing wiring for the fog lights. Plug and play baby.)


The finished version is really gonna blow some minds, not to let on what will coat it.
Remember, this is just the p r o t o t y p e. ;)
