50 Ford Truck - Front Bumper
Custom bumper fabrication starts with cardboard mock ups, Our first concern is how the inside perimeter fits to the body. We are looking to build a bumper that looks symmetrical in size. The original bumper was quite homely as Ford did not have a better idea when it was designed so we will do our part to give it style.
After mockups are accepted we trace out on to a sheet of 14 gauge steel. We are cutting the patterns just outside of our marks using a BD nibbler capable of cutting 3/16 with ease.
After trimming right on the mark we fit, tack weld and grind the edges smooth for a bumper that is looking good.
The frame needed to be trimmed a bit for the narrower bumper to fit correctly.
As seen the new bumper fits well to the body as they compliment each other nicely.
