rear stubby bumper atempt

Ok Im not one for typing so I took lots of pics hope they help!!! All I can say is I made a template of the bumper end with a pizza box (of course )and started playin with that, did not take pics though. I started taping up bumper and sketching some lines on them.I went with the angled line as you will see in later pics. I used a scroll saw, heating iron from lowes $ 19 and some other stuff . Take your time and it will come out great just dont rush it !!! http://s998.photobucket.com/albums/a...ubby%20bumper/

I guess you used the heating iron to melt the ends back on?

yes I back Welded (melted) the top area of the bumper and the I used the heating iron on the ends and finished off with a wood rasp to clean things up a bit and hit it w the tourch a little!Its a lot of trial and luck !!! just go for it its only plastic!

looks good, i cut mine short and spent hours making it look good. First time I hit a rock on it it blew apart! So I just hacked it off and am running it pretty short until I get a real bumper.

I hear ya on the blowing apart thing ! you can only get so much penatration on the plastic w a heating iron. hope mine dosn't come to the same ending as yours did ,atleast not too soon. I would like to enjoy it for a while. Im thinking on cutting the fenders, but Im a little hesitant as I get alot of snow and lousey winter weather in MASS ! Im going to throw it out there in a post soon and see what peoples thoughts are on cutting w snow ect! Thanks
