    Thanks Guys /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    This was the second bumper I have ever built, and I had a lot of fun building it. It took me about half as long as the rear. The most time Consuming part is Fitting up the pipe. It also took me a while to get both sides of the 8"x3" tubing bent back equally to flow with the body /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Those damn rubber things (dock stops), cost me about 25 bucks at the semi trailer manufactering place.

    Funny you should say that, becasue I really wanted to paint "Rice Recycler" on the back bumper with the recycling symbol on each side.

    I wish I did, I just made it up as I went. I pulled the old bumper off and just mocked stuff up a stage at a time.
    If you really want me too, I could take some measurements (I wrote them on the bumper as I went along)and show you some more pics of earlier stages. Glad to help in any way, let me know if you have anymore questions.
