    Default Rosso,s home made Igloo Bumper ....

    as you know Rosso is a tight arse and pays for fk all .. I thought id have a go at making him an Igloo Bumper cause they are 50 odd quid and like hens teeth over here .....

    first I bought a sheet of 12mm High Density Polyethelyne ( that's what they are made from ) 2mm thicker than the bumper you can buy ....

    then I got my mate to scan my bumper and make me some vinyl stickers so as I could stick it to the HDP and cut round it with a bandsaw ...





    once I had the HDP cut I then ran my router round it and bull nosed the edges so as it looked better ....







    I then marked and drilled the holes and attached it to an old chassis I have .... once attached I applied some heat ( a lot of heat ) and tightened the bolts and then let it cool ....





    then I put it on the car using bolts with cup washers as I didn't want to counter sink the holes as it makes the HDP crack sometimes if you over tighten the bolts ....





    hope he likes it cause it took me hours to do and I think it looks like the real mc,coy ....

    I just sent the guy I got it from an email about his cutting service ... I want to know will he cut it that shape for me and how much more will it be if he does .... I can do the rest and do it a bit better as I have seen better ways to do some of the stuff I done .... its a right pain to cut and get perfect so if he cuts it for me then its a bonus ....

    the 5t one is longer and the sheet I buy isn't long enough .... the one I made is about 3/4 inch shorter than my original bumper I bought from a shop .... I could make you one for the shorty and it would be better as I know a better way to heat it for bending ....

    the guy that gets me the plastic has some left but I cant get it until next week sometime .... anyone else interested let me know and I can order a few sheets .... haven't a clue how to price it either so I would like some feedback what you think is a fair price without post ....

    I will take one for the shorty when you have one ready let me know the price..
    How long does it take you to make them and sort the stuff go off that then Price it.

    Also if you can source longer sheets let em know will have one for the 5t

    Great job! I would advise to chance the design a bit as not to attract any bad rep from cloning Igloo. Otherwise

    I cut it with a bandsaw and its hard to keep it straight but easy to cut if you know what I mean .... the router just finishes it nice and then you just sand it for the matt finish .... bending it is the hardest part because of how thick it is but I have a new way to do it next time so I don't leave any heat marks on it ....
