Sand slingin slasher -- part 2
tecnica2001

No, no aluminum was used, I cut out the center part from a CRP front frog bumper, heated the ends with a heat gun, to make the plastic soft and bendable, and bent the ends back towards the body, drilled holes on the bottom of the center post for screws and voila, the bottom portion of the bumper is made out of a stock frog bumper, that i just cut the ends off.

Once I paint the hood black, I'm going to add a PR flag to it, some 'El Salvaje' stickers on it and finish up the interior.
