Anyone have ideas on how to accomplish this mod:

Not the top grill block or the head light thing but the bottom of the bumper...
I want to make it flat like in the ghetto-photoshop I did...

I want to do something like this and have some cash to spend but would like to keep it cheap-er... Would just screwing coroplast into the bumper and painting it silver be the best way or is there anyway I can heat up the bumper enough to shape it?

Sounds crazy to heat up the bumper to shape it but W/E :D:rolleyes::thumbup:

Or is this way to much blockage?

You might be able to find "kick panel" trim in a close to matching grey at Lowe's or Home Depot. It's like $4 for 3 to 6 feet of flexible rubber that's 4" or 6" tall. I forget the exact name, and can't seem to find it via search.

It would be awesome to block that much of my grill off, I want to start a belly pan too but just up under the front bumper, Just worried about using coroplast cuz that might sag or rip off

Two layers of Coroplast can be glued together with beads of Silicon Seal. It takes a while to dry, but gives a very rugged panel. It also makes it easy to make seams and hold curves. There is also a heavy-duty, thicker Coroplast.

I forgot his name, but there's the dude that did the awesome side mirror deletes and the front foglight covers for his Civic (hatch?).

I don't think that will cost much $, but I it will cost time. Sooooooo, it depends on what you have more of, punk! (as Dirty Harry might say)

Big Daddy Roth would have used plaster to seal and smooth, then fiberglass over it.

I still like my shrink wrap plastic. $1.68 at Lowes. It is the stuff you put over your house windows in the winter with double sided tape and then shrink with a hair drier. Since it is clear no need to paint. I put mine on in the begining of winter and still on there. I need to attack it again with a hair dryer since some of wrinkles came back. I've started watching the SG temp guage as the temp warms up. I'm hoping to rig a cooling fan light so I can make sure I'm not overheating.

I thought about doing something similar. My plans was to buy a second used bumper and stretch fabric over the inlet. fiberglass over it sand, prime and paint.

Same idea...

1.Clear packing tape on the outside. 2.expanding foam in a can. easy if the bumper is removed but if you can get at it from behind it's that much faster. 3.let dry a few days, remove tape and trim off excess foam. 4. Fiberglass coat it.
