    Well, finished the rear bumper today... With exception of mounting the backup lights, license plate, and trailer plug, but the big work is done...

    Looking good. So let me blast y'all with some questions.

    1. DOM? Size?

    2. Wire size on the MIG?

    3. How many hours do you have into this project?

    Looks great, got any idea when you might have the front bumper for a K5, I'd make a great southern test vehicle /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'm talking with the laser cutter people now about the main bracket cutting... Soon as I get a quote back from them we'll see...
