I love the look of the GT cutout. If it was just about function, I wouldn’t have a 914.

Fair price for work performed.

If I like...I will do TWO steel bumpers.

I couldn't or wouldn't do them any cheaper.

Thx Ben

I'm interested, I assume the price is for the steel work only (not including plating), is there a group buy cost going for getting them re-chromed?

@Justin71 yes this is for the steel work only. I have honed my method on my way through 3 of these. There is allot of little details on these and I know now how to anticipate that as I build them..

Props to Ben @mb911 !!!!!

His GT front bumper mods came out SWEET!!!
I’m definitely in for two.

I like the nice small tig welds...very cleanly done. Can't wait to see them chromed.
My guys are used to 1/4" to 3" plate welding and impressed with Ben's nice work. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif)

Ben -

I'm in for one but I do not have a core at the moment. I'm actively trying to find one. I need one without the holes for "tits". Thanks -

Oscar thank you for the kind words.. I learned a method on these and started on @Markepstein s then worked mine and then Dannys each time with improvements and I have an even better way to do them now.

I will be offering this service on my new website as I enjoy doing them . besides it helps for paying for my chrome work (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
