Bought it Dave. Gonna stop at Home Depot and get some flat metal brackets for the sides of the bumper on my way home. Should have her all fixed up soon if my wife allows me the time to do it.
Bought it and it didnt work or bought to try it out?

$60? Shoooot. I'm in the wrong business. I want to make a good looking spoiler for a coupe, and I can add that to the list of fiberglass moulds to make.

This is going to seem awfully “sister phuckin” to most of you, but it’s bugged me for two years now (like most of the rest of the car). When I made this front bumper, I cut the driver’s side to slide under the molding on the fender extension, rather than behind it. Little did I realize, it would have fit right behind it. So on the passenger side I left it alone and it fit great behind the fender extension molding. The driver’s side has always had a little gap from the missing slice of bumper though. So before I finished the gray paint on the plastics, I had to fix that. Well how do you replace plastic that is no longer there? You building a masking tape/cardboard mold and fill it with PBA (after a lot of prep and gouging for it to grab to of course). This is my last skim coat of PBA curing tonight before I do the final shaping tomorrow.

Looks like she, right? 99% of this structure won’t be seen, but will be sanded to resemble the shape of what was once there. This will allow for symmetry on both sides and pull one thorn from my side in regard to how I feel about this car.

I still having more sanding to do, as well as some high build primer to spray and sand, but wanted to show better what I was doing. The black PBA was not there before, so you can see the gap that was once there under the molding piece. Not no mo! (Molding is just sitting in position for these pics)
