View Full Version : Stock Bumper modification

03-09-2007, 06:25 PM
If any of you have been following my projects you probably saw the bodykit install and molding project. I never really liked the Invader 2 front but I had to install it to pass my senior project to pass highschool. I couldn't stand leaving it on so I was goin to buy a CS bumper. That plan fell thru so i decided to modify my stock bumper then add or make a lip for it later. Here is what I have done so far.





I still need to do a little fiberglass work but let me know what you think so far.

I was going to do that same exact thing with my bumper if I couldnt get a CS.

theres a writeup of how to do this on toyotacelicaonline.com it's been there for years. Looks good though. I would fiberglass the holes where you cut out.

i was going to do the same then add a lip, then i could not find a lip,they were to small and pricey, i found one at carcept.com but its in europe, so just bought a 90-91 bumper and slaped on a erebuni lip. your bumper is looking good good luck with your project, post some pics.

I was. Until people bailed out on me or couldnt get a good deal for one. I just gave up on it for right now. Maybe next year or something.
