Great start, I'll be watching this one. The bumper is awesome, did you make it?

Yeah. I drew it in cad and cut it out on the cnc laser I run at work. Had one of the ypungfellas we have at the shop bend the ends up for me, then polished it. It's 304 stainless steel.

 

Sanded it with an orbital sander starting with 150 grit paper, then 240, 320, 400, 500 grits, then onto the buffing wheel and finished with autosol metal polish and a microfiber towel

It's not an easy material to work with, stainless. But not sure is pretty

To an extent, yes. I won't be lowering it any but the big bumper should make it look lower. Will be getting full rear fenders as well.
