So its getting hardcore now! the bodywork is starting!!!
I couldnt find myself a s1 trxx front bumper local and was going to cost about $500 AUD to get one
into australia so i decided to design my own, as you can see in the photo below that is what it looked like before i started everything. the bottom part is a l200 rear bumper flipped upside down and trimmed to rough size.
Next i measured to size and cut in in the middle because the bar was to wide to fit snug on the ends.
I drilled holes and held it with zipties.
Then i filled up the gap with expanding foam to help bond the two parts together
Now the foam is dry i went ahead and removed the zip ties holding the two parts together
and got the 38grit sand paper and gave the edges a good sand and roughen up the surfaces for the fiber glass mat to have a better chance to bond to.
I put down layers of fiberglass and a few extra in the middle on the join
I then filled the top body line and the bottom hole on the grille
While i had the energy i filled the gap between the bottom half and factory bumper to make it look like one and not an add on
I have yet to sand it down and finish it off but this is where i am at now.
ALOT OF SANDING!
