Looks good. Takes balls to drill into a painted bumper!

Any backing on the handles for security?

Id be worried about people popping it and getting in

why did you bend the aluminum? it looked good flattened.You could have bolted at major points and used like caulking or shoe goo or something to the extent.and painting it would be as easy as a brillo pad rubbed in circular motions and a can of spray paint applied evenly and then lightly clear coat for sheen and durability of paint

Hey bud, I know you're all into the weight reduction, but make sure your spare tire, jack, AND jumper cables are secured inside the vehicle. If you are in an accident unsecured items become projectiles. Jumper cables are a few pounds and don't seem like much, but if you were to have a highway speed impact the cables could be a potential hazard. Just want all the eco-modders to be safe!

Some good work on your grill blocks and fog deletes! If you we like to straighten the top edge of your grill block out (and help air cruise over the hood), try using strap/band steel or aluminium to make a straight edge. It wouldn't take much to pop-rivet the bracing behind what you've already accomplished!

PS - I noticed that his thread was dug up from the grave after posting my response...

Thank you and enjoy ..

Where do you get your vinyl from?

Is it permanent or removable?

I was looking for some to smooth out some spots on my car for testing.

Thanks
