Bumper brackets made from scratch- the kit brackets were so thick that i couldnt live with it.
I know i promissed OOB build, but the instinct was stronger.
I made the brackets using the brass sheet.
Rear brackets soldered for strength.
Half of the front bumper was replaced by beer can, an mangled.
Inside of the bumpers was hollowed.
Couple of rivets were made for each bumper from sewing pins turned flat in the dremel tool.
Painted using the hairspray technique with base color showing through.
