bumper trim

hello again, this is a stupid question but is there anything else besides a dremel that is good for trimming your bumper? i searched but the threads did not lead to anything besides a dremel and sawzall.

thanks

The previous owner to my Jeep used a Sawzall and though his lines were straight the edges were pretty jagged. I used a Dremel on a re-trim (on low speed, for plastic gets too hot and melts) after I put on my wheel spacers and found it to give me great control as a trimmed. Plus no jagged ends to boot!

I think it comes down to personal preference and what tools you have on hand...

Dremel, sawzall, angle gringer or air powered die grinder will work. but you'll have to use sand paper to smooth the edges out. A utility knife and a couple blades would work the best. but that involves alot of mnual labor... A light saber would probably work pretty well but you'll have to wait until it's invented

tin snips, but wear gloves or you'll wear a hole in your finger. Don't ask. sand paper for clean up, or some really hard-core rock crawling.

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
