Alrighty, So I worked with foam to fill in the front bumper, didn't really work out so well. The pieces were warping after I took them out, the foam slid while it was setting up and some places still had holes.

So I decided to scrap the foam/fiberglass idea. Instead I decided to go low-tech plastic I went and got some coroplast from a sign store ($20 for a 4x8 I know it was a little pricey but oh well).

The last pic if one of the fog lamp covers I made this afternoon, I will get more pics with them installed once I put them on the car, I'm going to attempt to get some measurements without them first.

One question though, will coroplast hold form if you heat and mold it or does it not work like that? as it stands now i'm trying to fasten it so it will hold tightly to the bumper.
