    Got the bumper finished up today. Finished filing the drivers flare, welded in some tabs behind to hold the exhaust tips in place floating in the openings. Over all I am super excited with how they look!

    Few bits I gotta tie up on the trunk next week, gaps and filling the holes from the emblems then I am moving on from the back of the car. It will be nice to start another piece to my project and feels good to be almost finished with the back end of the car. I promise this will be the last couple of pictures of the back of the car until bodywork and paint.

    Thanks CJ
    Thanks, you will definently see it in person when its finished.
    Thank you, I hope I am not going overboard on pictures.
    Thank you to all of you, its great to have positive feedback like this.
    I used round bar to make the flares, lot of sanding and filing to shape them.
    Its a custom bumper for sure!
    Thanks man, im super happy with them.

    Outstanding work, out of all the tail lights the 55 chevy's are the best.
    What is the plan for paint?

    Godspeed
