Well I figured with my school closing down due to Covid 19 I'd do something productive. My bumper was taken off a while back and long story short I want something different and a pain in the butt to make. I am sculpting mine from floral foam and then fiberglassing the bumper. My main goal here is to create a bumper that can survive my driveway.
Smell that? You smell that? Napalm son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning.

Wow thats a HUGE effort.  Fiberglass is definitely not going to survive many hits and shows stress fractures easily.  The nikofab airdam uses dirtbike plastic material....you can beat on it with a hammer all day...fyi

ALSO SIDE NOTE: I don't claim to have any idea of what I am doing. Just kinda winging it.

Thanks for the info! I'll do some research on maybe using another material if I can.
