Thanks, I forgot to show you guys this.
Cute little light up frame.




It also turns red (RICE!) but I think I might wire this into the brake light so when I hit the brakes it acts as another brake light.




No the bumper doesn't flex at all but the factory style mounts do, I will be running channels down the frame and that will be part of this thread.

Working on boxing it in.





Adding a little flair.




The backing plate with holes so it can be welded from the back.

To weld the support channels to the back of the bumper. I know, I could make them and slide them into the frame but this way will be so much easier. I dont feel like dicking around pulling it on and off 100 times. I've also already put frame stiffeners on the outside so I now want to run bolts horizontally and vertically.
