50 Ford Truck - Rear Bumper
Many times we will get a new bumper that looks decent but needs some fabrication changes from stock. As seen on this rear bumper the edge is wrinkled and rough. This is about to change as Kenny will implement his skills and change the beast to beauty.
Keep in mind this is an exact duplicate of the original bumper in stainless steel. Shown here Kenny cuts out a section of stainless steel and bends it in the brake with a joggle to fit our bumper and make it look right.
As seen it has been fitted and tack welded in place.
We welded it in solid with 0.23 stainless wire and ground it smooth.
Kenny removed all ripples and smoothed every imperfection out before sanding with 400 grit.
We cut the original brackets and raised the bumper which helped the looks of the reared dramatically.
Another look from the backside shows a finished off look that is hard to beat.
