Did you remove the recovery points off the front of the ARB?

Nothing really new today due to work... Just did a little bit more cutting for the grill and wheel wells. Hopefully I'll get a lot more accomplished tomorrow with more pictures!

Nope, they are part of the frame bracket. I was sure that they were not disturbed even as much as I've cut away. Here you can see them even after I've cut off the bumper attaching points hanging down low:

Not much to update in the last two days. Strangely work is taking up the majority of my time... I did, however, manage to get in a few hours.

I cut off the end caps:



And finnished the cut for the 08-10 grill:



I had to cut an inch out of the hoop brackets for grill clearance. I cut some pieces of 1/8" steel to blend into the metal.



And welded them up:



I made some templates for new end caps and decided to call it quits for the night. The new end caps are going to be recessed such that the fender liners can mount like the stock 08+ ones do (that's the best I can describe it for now) on the stock bumper.

Progress!

I figure I have almost 30 hours into this project at this point. Definitely more work than I had originally planned. I started today by mounting up the bumper to finalize the position of the 08+ headlight fillers. I also trimmed up the underbumper pieces:









Unfortunately the windshield washer resivour is partially exposed. I decided I'm not going to worry about it, as its not a very vital part.

I made some recessed bumper endcaps and trimmed the fender liners to fit:





I welded up the headlight fillers:



Test fit:



Done for the day. On to bodywork and hopefully paint tomorrow!

The removed metal:



I estimate it at 20 or 30 pounds!
