Custom Fabricated 88 Subaru RX Bumpers

Recommended Posts

Hey so today I made a cool front bumper for my Subaru RX. Its not done yet still going to build in a custom two piece skid plate into it. All I did to make this was cut the bumper support out until the only thing left was the support. Welding some steel tubing into it untill it started to take shape. I am pleased with how it came out i just need some WRC looking lights to complete the look I am going for. The rear bumper is 4x2 steel frame rail that I stacked onto each other and simply bolted them up to the stock location of the rear bumper support so I can switch back easily.

Stock Bumper support cut in half already.

Thanks guys and yea the weather is going to be really nice up 58 degrees next week so I might just go absolutely nuts on the body work this weekend. I just grabbed two quarts of POR 15 going to test it on all the frame rails so I can put it on the ground do a quick test drive and not worry about the frame dying again.
