Your bumper is hurtin, what are you replacing it with? I vote black for the hardtop. Naca duct came out quite well.

Same bumper but made out of duraflex which is supossed to be more flexible than fiberglass and it won't break with any little bump I hit

I used expoxy to secure the flast side to the bottom of the lid, then fiberglassed the **** out of it.

JB weld is a pathetic excuse for a product.
