      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

One piece bumper : the easy way

1 post in this topic

Posted

One piece bumpers are a really kool feature on kustoms. In real you need to remove the guards that are bolted on, weld the three pieces together, and then rechrome... :P

At our scale thing are not so easy ... :? Behind the guards there is no material, so when you remove them, you find two big holes, and whatever you try to do, the result is very fragile, and sanding smooth some thing that always crack is very frustrating ! :cry:

The way i do need two part molds knowledge, but if i can, then every body can ! :wink:

As you can see from behind, that shoebox bumper had very deep holes behind the guards...

What i do first is to put some modeling clay in the hole, like this :
