I have no clue what kind of quality this piece is, but it might be good for those of you who are looking to cut up a rear bumper. Amida and some people sell the ferrari style front bumpers. But as far as I know, nobody makes a replica of a ferrari rear bumper. For 150 bucks, it might be worth someone looking into so they can chop it up and make a one off custom piece!

Check out my build!

I did just that for my choptop and I will say this, it was a lot of work to cut and fit it to the rear of the car. I think I have about 100 hrs in mine and another $300 in fiberglass. it is a good base but that is just the start. you will only use about 40% of it for a fiero. also to do that style you must cut your trunk out, it will not clear.

No I did not buy that one I did buy another one that I did this with. look at my 88GT custom build thread here on PFF and you will see it.

Guys...
the add is for a front bumper $149.00 ...the pics are of the rear bumper...not that i need it but has anyone checked which bumper it is that is $149.00? some places might the pic in the add is wrong and try to charge more for the rear one.
for that price it bight be worth cutting and grafting pieces to a glass rear bumper like i have with the wide body.
no i can't....but it is tempting...

I just repaired a really bad bumper in a day. My mates GM HSV hit a kangeroo he knows what i have done to my car had no money and asked if i could perform a miracle he is a panel beater by trade and knew how bad it was. I glassed it all back up it was in 2 pieces and shattered. I did a 90% job on it retaining full strength but left him with perfecting the facia which he did in a couple of hours at work i paid for his glass and bog work i just want gonna sand it perfect for him knowing he is a panel beater by trade. I did feel a bit honored to have a panel beater ask me to make him a glass panel. I could ask him to build a custom steel panel because i have seen him do it but he can also paint which helps me. I was working on his car last weekend while he worked on mine was a bit odd but we both knew we could do better jobs than each others cars so swapped jobs instead of own cars.
Making a bumper fit is a lot different than people realise besides just the chop down center you need to make it sit right on the sides and blend with fenders etc i am suprised that only 300 hours have been spent.

Actually if anyone is considering buying this ask them to cut it in half and halve the postage.
