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..
mb911
Anyone else want one done?
ValcoOscar
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. beerchug.gif 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 biggrin.gif

Thank you Jim. beerchug.gif

@wes

I am ready when ever you are..

I have 4 prepped for welding..

@ValcoOscar gets credit for precutting the one huge opening for a v8.. Click to view attachment

My excitement is building. Ah but just realized that after Ben and Oscar are done with there combined beautiful craft work my perfectly good rear bumper is not going to have that gorgeous deep shiny look. Next!
mb911
I have one more bumper coming in and then received my 1st GT bumper back last night.. Looks great..
mb911
Here is Oscar's 1st bumper done. This is a huge cut out for maybe a v8 car? Either way looks good. Click to view attachment

I got to thinking about this modification and wondered if instead of the oil cooler you went with a modified air conditioning unit. No holes cut in the trunk pan, no water scoop. It would be up front like the 911SC condenser.

Received all of Marks valances so will start working that. Also now own 3 core bumpers so if anyone is looking to have a bumper done and doesn't want to use the one on the car I can help with that..

That’s what I’m going for on my GT build.
echocanyons
Would you consider doing a steel version of the bottom portion with a flare for the fender?
I assume that you would use a stock piece and modify it?

@chi-town I can make you one easy enough..

@echocanyons yes that will happen but will take some time to develop a procedure etc.
mb911
3 ready for me to finish to your specs.. These are available for purchase outright or send me yours for modifications. Click to view attachment
mb911
Still have some available.. Let me know who needs one.
mb911

Good you added the “without chroming” it sounded to good to be true. I almost ordered another one and I haven’t another car to even put it on.
Any progress on the matching GT valance?

@wes no progress yet. Just so busy with day job/kids /business/and working on my car.. It's on my radar.
mb911
All of my cores are spoken for but 1.. Let me know who needs one made up and I can handle the chroming and even bumper tops if needed.
mb911
Still offering this service but NO chroming offered unless I can find someone local to chrome.. Oscar's source does great work but neither he nor I can control time frame..
