Can't wait to see what the front ends up looking like! I'm sure you've got a good vision in your head.

Looks like a good start. I'm excited to see the finished bumper. Are you going to do anything to the rear?

A few more pics..I ran out of poly foam and am ass in the middle of the job too! The shape is comin along like I want.I guess the hard part is having both sides come out even.

I dropped the front about 2 inches.when the glass goes on,I'll then fine tune the height depending on how low I further drop the car when my adjustable coilovers are all done.

Here is a view from the front.still a very rough casting.but the height is about where I want it.and still waiting for the poly foam to come UPS.should be finished in a couple weeks.I'm thinking of the possibility of making a blank? I'll see how it turns out.

so right now you are just sculpting the bumper, then are you going to make a fiber glass mold and then make a cast from that mold?

If that is plan, what are you taking the final cast with? will you use fiber glass to cast the final piece from a fiber glass mold?
