Anyone has access to them. You go to an autobody supply shop or order online. Being "hardcore" and doing it right are 2 different things lol
I've done molded bumpers and custom valence work. The same principles apply to patching a hole and molding 2 bumpers together.

What do u recommend using to fill up 3-4 inch gaps. Those thing looks good if u have a surface to put it o, but I don't think it is structurly sound like fiberglass..

Adhesion promoter is crucial. I'd use some mesh, scrap plastic, and plastic adhesive to fill gaps.

Test fitment. I have no idea how I'm going to make the exhaust work. There's no room to run any piping.

I'm sorry bro, but that looks like ass... I appreciate that you're trying to be different, but you're making your car look worse by the day.

Ouch.

You haven't seen anything close to completion, and your opinion might differ from what is viewed as appealing, and honestly I think you're e92 needs a makeover, but if you like it, who cares what I think.

I think the use of "looking like ass" is a little harsh as well.

I remember your first thread with everyone shooting you down then we saw the finished product and were all amazed.

I see the potential it has, keep moving forward with it, can't wait to see the finished product.

I think the exhaust openings are too far apart, but I'm sure you have that in your mind.

Are you keeping the front and sides the same?
