To trim or not to trim...that is the question

Went to town on the XJ this weekend. Trimmed front and rear, and painted all my trim black. The paint looks like crap, but it's better for now until I Herc it or something.

Before:



After:




Now, as far the last picture, I am up in the air what to do. I think it looks kinda funny with the bumper not even with the trimming, but I don't know if I should cut it or not. I doubt I'd take anything away from it structurally, but that's some thick freakin' metal. So, should I trim the bumper as well, or leave it?

I think you should trim it then weld (or get someone else to weld) it back up.

I voted to trim the end of the bumper off...just my opinion -- but then I can't see what level of dedication you are going to have to put in to get it off.

Are you going to put a rubber strip around the fender so you don't cut your head off when you work under the wheel well!!! I remember seeing a pic of something doing that recently. LOL Was it Wotzilattor or whatever the hell his name is?! LOL

Already done actually! I had one of my vendors at work hook me up with some this morning, so I am all set with that. I think I am going to look for something that will hold on a little stronger, seeing as how it's going to get kinda beat up right there, but for now it'll hold.
