Also started folding up the rear bumper, Dad was talking about using it as a mold and making some fiberglass bumpers with them depending on how they turn out.

Work has continued. Rear filler panel is all made and mounted now just need to figure out a way to move the fuel flap latch.
also the main part of the bumper has been mounted to car. We need to mount this so we can start sculpting the sides of the bumper. Also have made the decision to move the number plate to the back bumper. Any ways a few pics.

Work on rear bumper is continuing. 1 corner nearly complete, looking amazing. I better start working on a rear defusor, before dad get to far. With the bumpers.

Any suggestions on were i should put the number plate? I was thinking in the middle of the rear bumper as long as it doesn't clash with the defusor.

I was trying to find a picture of the original rear bumper for comparison this was all i could find unfortunately.

The new steel bumpers are fairly similar but don't have all the swages and etc in them, Im loving it.
