Can't wait to see things progress on this... Been in the market for awhile and there is nothing out there currently that I would spend my money on. I have high hopes for this...

About using your front bumper as a starting point for the mould. As the turn signal holes were already filled in...

got it. I offered it. No one ever reached out.

I leave the country for 9 days tomorrow night, so if I go silent, you know why.

I already have a fiberglass front bumper that I will be using. I didn't want to mess his up, as I would have to put bondo all over it to get it to the correct shape. He did offer, but right now what I needed was an idea of where to go with this and incorporate that into what I am making. Pictures of his bumper, as well as others, have sufficed for that.

Set-out a couple Borolos for me, please. Seriously Matt, think of everything we've been through.

When it gets out of this freezing crap we have going on right now. I am going to work on it, but until then I am staying in the heated part of the shop.

Sorry guys this will have to be on hold for a little while. Work has picked back up significantly and I am going all over the country right now. I want to do a front bumper some time in the future, but for now, it doesn't seem feasible to allocate that much time to that right now. Rather than just tell you guys it will be 6 months out or a year out, I just want to say it is suspended and leave that open.

This is something I very much want to do, but right now our work load has increased 10 fold and just can't fit this in right now.

I'd rather you have more work to stay above water than have a bunch of bumpers made right before you declare bankruptcy. Congrats on the business, hope it keeps up.
