Figured I'd add some pics from the bumper build. I did not weld this (you can tell because it looks good) My frame and body do not align like they should, so the drivers side wing is actually trimmed about 1-1/2" forward to line up with the fender. The fab guy did a good job of boxing the front near the head lights to make it look good though.
