Any Pics of Tube Front Bumper for Hardbody?
« on: November 03, 2009, 04:25:55 AM »

Hey yall.  Gettin ready to get richard (rock humper fabrication) to fab me up a tubular front bumper for my 93 HB.  Any suggestions, pics of tubular bumper designs, or comments?   Also, Ive seen where some people cut the front fender flush with the bottom of the corner light up front.  Anyone else done and and do you know the best way to do this.  Thanks    icon_smile_driving

I think like 3-400 dollars for my bumper.  I plan on sliders also later on, but thats after I get a welded third member.  Im still working on finding a design/look I want and I still have to make some more $$$

To answer your original question, about cutting the front fender flush with the corner light, I think HardbodyTy did this with his old HB.  He posted at one point that he didn't just cut the fender; I believe he folded it to make the finished product look better.  If I remember correctly, he sandwiched the fender between two pieces of metal in the perfect line he wanted, to serve as guides, and then folded it inward, so the bottom part was parallel to the ground.  If you search, you might find his posting...I'm not certain where it was.

Thats exactly what I was wanting to do- kinda roll the bottom to make it just like the rest of the fender where the wheel is.

Here it is...read through the text and pictures in the first post on this page:
http://www.nissanoffroad.net/messageboard/index.php?topic=420.15

Looks like a cut, a couple of vise grips, and a couple of pieces of metal.  Should be easy to pull off.  :-)
