Thanks very much for the excellent feedback and the compliments, '57 Joe - I definitely appreciate it! You are 100% correct reference purchase vs create - And I looked for a reasonably priced passenger side bumper end for quite a while - Then I saw an article in the Nov/Dec 2014 issue of Car Kulture Deluxe about - Funny enough - Repairing bumpers on a Cadillac. Seeing that article made me think I should attempt the fix, because my search for a good quality and reasonably priced replacement was fruitless. Also - I'm in a school environment, which I may not have mentioned before. Because of that, my instructor and I felt tackling repair of the bumper ends was a good opportunity for me to learn some metal-shaping skills with heavier gauge metal - So we decided to go for it and do the repairs. They're not 100% complete, but they're good enough to bolt everything together and revisit them later. One thing I've also learned with this Caddy is - Everything I can buy for her is 2-4 times more expensive than a more "mainstream" project car. But to me, it'll all be worth it in the long run. Right now, I have exactly two weeks of school left - I need to drive this baby outta the shop when I'm done, and I still have quite a bit of work left to do on her. But that's what they make long days for, right?
