Looks good man, put it on!

I wish I had done this, instead of going with the 9 front bumper.

are you worried about the bondo cracking?

I like how you rivitted the sheet metal to the bottom.

I think I'm going to attempt this it doesn't look hard at all.

I'd like to combine the techniques of yours and others though. I think I'm going to rivet a piece of sheet metal like you did, but instead of using bondo, I want to plastic weld on a filler piece.

what specifically did you use to smooth it out? I've been contemplating this, but am afraid to use something inflexible, as I don't want it to crack.

if you get the good "bondo" which is a term bdoy shops will not use! lol If you get the good stuff, it is pretty flexible. You will want to be careful with that part of the bumper, just for safe measure though. I am prolly gonna do this to my 8 bumper soon. It looks amazing!
