They all look great, I prefer #3 myself as it seems to tie the whole front together the most.

I can't help but think you have alot of bumper going on for that size car. Integrating them up tighter against the body may help running the risk of too much of a bumper car look. Just my opinion, it is your car though and you are doing some great work. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Believe me, that is one of the concerns that I have...over bumpering it. (is bumpering even a word? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]) It is a fine line between having just the right "look" and having it look gawdy or like a kiddie ride at the state fair.

I will be making some wooden templates and foam mock-ups before fabricating any really bumpers.

I want them tucked into the body tight. I have even lhought about putting a step in the body work to get the bumpers closer to flush on the sides.
