Solid work, but IMO just looks too aggressive for the rest of the car. Some nice wheels might help.

I assume you had to do some work on the bumper in order to match it up with the fenders. How did you do this? Fiberglass, etc.? Did you ever consider modifying the fender instead? What issues did you see with that approach?

It doesn't seem to be lining up perfectly with the fenders to me. It looks like the edge of the bumper is at a different angle than the edge of the fender. Anyone else seeing this?


Besides that it looks good. I think the car as a whole would look better if you worked on the rest of it to match the aggressiveness of the bumper. Right now, its dull from the headlights back.
