So, the metal support under the front bumper is all rusted out on my '89. Been thinking of a good way to rebuild it, was thinking something tubular. Has anyone tried this, or have any ideas/input?

There are a few of us who have built them, but I've never seen an oem replacement that bolts on. Its been a done typically along with some significant modifications.

Any pictures of your setup? I've got the front end disassembled and am media blasting the entire front end/engine bay at the moment, prepping for paint and fixing the imperfections...so now's my time lol.

I wish I could draw like that.  I think I am missing the art gene.

Nice frame!

Joe, the front of my car is tweaked slightly and prolly won't work as well on a perfect car. Easiest thing to do is build a jig off the stock one and fab yours up from there.

He's right about using your oem one as a jig. If you look at my build thread you can see how I did just that for mine.
