So you are making a foam mold, and then plan on fabbing a whole new bumber out of fiberglass?

Any plans on what you're doing with the old (current) one?

Well, by what I'm seeing in the last photo...you haven't planted your tomatoes this year.

Other than that, I like how it looks.

lol correct, my parents have not gotten a chance to yet. but here is the situation. i still have some small finish sanding and such. but i got the car backed out of the garage and had a chance to take some pics.

here they are. thoughts?







in the future i feel as if i will be making a different slightly less "smoothed out" more aggressive "drifter" style front. i also will be making a rear roll pan style bumper.

Is the intercooler going to completely fill that opening? What color are you going to have the intercooler? I'm not really liking the black in the opening.

Looks like your truck (left) has a flat tire...

But I really dig the look of that front, WAY more than my RL.

I would smooth out the line between the grey and red parts of the bumper, though.

Is your Vue lowered, or stock height?

you leaving the stock vent/fog holes?

Filling those, or narrowing them to slits, would give you a mean(er) look...

i was going for the e46 style lower lip. so i dont think i will be filling it in but im going to be making the vents functional. i like the paint vents in the 2nd one but i might just make some sort of an insert to go in over them. see how it goes.
