A sneak-peak it is!  From what I can see I like.  I can't wait to see them with tires.  Out of curiosity, what wheel size and backspacing are they?

Very Cool ! Excellent way to create a bumper that will look the part. As if  it was made with the car, instead of simply bolted on as an afterthought.
I can't believe the hours invested! You are dedicated!

There is no doubt you "get it"!!  I very much appreciate your perspective as it is mine as well.  I really appreciate your compliments on the direction my car is taking.  If you only knew how much "hate mail" I have received from the Boss 302 "purists" and general jerks criticizing what I'm doing to _my_ car, it would make you rethink the hobby sometimes!  Funny, not a single one of them is willing to part with the $$$$$$ it takes to make it "theirs".  LOL!

Stay warm up there in Munising!  Love that area of the U.P.!

Thanks!  Tire choice is a really tricky decision when you fill up the wheel tubs to the last little bit.  I thinkwe have narrowed the tire choice to two, but a lot more measuring need to happen before we make the final choice.

The wheels are 18 x 9 in front and 18 x 10 out back with backspacing of 4.750" front and 5.900" rear.  The rear hub webs have been narrowed a bit to get the 1" lip reveal difference between the front and back wheels.  That will become more obvious when we get the car on it's suspension for mock-up with tires.

Thanks JTS!  It is definitely the "slow" way to create a bumper you want, but when there is nothing out there that is "just right" you really have no choice but to do it yourself or settle for something less.  I ain't to the point of settling!!!!!
