    I will write up the simple proceedure when I am done, but right now I am very busy at work. The car is a red the previous owner painted, it was the color of his Maserati Mistral. The pictures are not accurate as I had to adjust them to show the bumper, the color on my profile is more descriptive. I am still interested in the bumper thing but I am looking for a set of used bumpers as I am not sure wether they will be damaged making the molds. I am thinking of buying a new bumper from FUK but it is $1800 and I am not rich like you guys! :) I can still push them in some more but because of the side bumperettes I though moving them to the area which looks like a step looked best, they wouold obviously look real cool all the way in but then the bumperettes have a large space which looks kindof weird.

    I am still interested in the fiberglass bumpers but no one has expressed any interest yet. I would be more motivated if a couple of gt4 owners said that they were interesed up front before I start the project once again I dont want any cash just some vague acknowledgements of interest!

    I can see it now: wife: What are those four bumpers doing hanging on the livingroom wall. rob: well.... its a long story.......

    Euro bumpers can fit on a US car but modifications needs to be done. When I bought my US car the PO had both front and rear bumpers pushed in, looks cleaner.
