Nicely done - looking forward to seeing photos of finished painted bumper ! What thickness metal did you use to clad it ?

To finish off nicely is time consuming - lots of grinding and filling - but worth it to get a good finish !!!!!

Hi Andy I used 1.6mm to clad it. I think the finishing off work was the hardest of it all. Will post the pics as soon as photobucket decides to work with me.
