A couple more shots.

Here is the center section of the mold. Notice the "plug" for the bumper mold in the background leaning against the 40' willys body mold.

The holes in the flange are for bolting the three pieces of the mold together.

The left section.

The right section.

Next is laying fiberglass in the mold and actually making a part (bumper). cool

We now have a 100% fiberglass part. Here are the pics.

The mold is bolted together and sprayed with gelcoat.

Nice work guys! I can't wait to see the finished product. Any idea on when the completed car pics will be available? I would seriously consider a bumper set for my '95 Riv that is being rebuilt after my wreck over a year ago.

The exterior should be done in january. I will keep posting progress pics until the project is completed inside and out.

I know it is a long time from now but I go to a big show in spartanburg sc every year, usually in august (elite summer nationals). If it is close enough for you to swing down you are welcome to come take a look and listen if you are interested.

How did all your gaps come out.? Did you nail it or did it require a bit of grinding, etc to make it fit.?
Looks good, can't wait to see the tips and the front, then all painted up.

Everything worked out great. Some minor sanding in one spot on the left side, on the inside the bumper ( tight fit with everything fitting flush ). Gaps are TIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am very happy with the results and I'm also excited to get the front bumper on the car.

Hmm that makes the car look like how its supposed to look like before the safety nazi's got thier hands on the bumpers!

My birthday is coming up soon.. i may have to think about this quite seriously. Is there much required to fit like removal of the bars behind the stock bumpers?

It is not very difficult at all. The impact beams can be removed, or the bracket bolting the beam to the car can be shortened and reattached. The stock marker lights are also retained.

Wow, really looks nice. So I guess if someone wanted to retain the grey portion at the bottom they would just mask it off?

Yep, just mask off what ever portion you want a different color and paint accordingly.
