Bumper Shaved

Im going for a different look than most I've seen(in my town anyway)
I want the clean look,
Im taking all my emblems off but im probably leaving the front pony. Anyway I deleted my spoiler, Got Staggered Konig's Shorty Antenna and Lightly tinted headlights, barely noticeable,
BUT I want a cobra front bumper, and Instead of having mustang written on my rear bumper I want it shaved. Id rather buy a bumper with the letters gone but I cant find ANY. I got offered one but it had exhaust cut outs and I prefer to have the v6 bumper because Im dumping the exhaust. Does anyone know where I can find one? Ive tried craigslist, google searched everywhere. Much help is needed,
Thanks

Re: Bumper Shaved

Yah thanks for the link SaturnMan8227...I was thinking of LRS too.

Those repro. bumpers are good, but be ready for some adjusting and flexing...just part of adding different parts to the car.

Re: Bumper Shaved

similar to what spector said, i've notice that a lot of knock off body parts are sold without letters on them. Maybe try a "fake" roush bumper. since Some roush kits have the side exhaust, the bumper should be clean cut.

Re: Bumper Shaved

I still cant find one! I prefer one without cutouts because I want to dump the exhaust so you cant see any tips, I found ONE with cutouts on craigslist, I thought about bondo but if its not done well you'll NOTICE

I have, I almost check daily, Although they are cheaper I just havent found a non-letter bumper on there yet, do you think bondo is a bad choice? I know over time it has a big chance of cracking but if there is some kind of protection to give it more life I would just do that.

Re: Bumper Shaved

Yah bondo or any kind of body filler will look like crap after a while...I'd just spend the money and get the reproduction bumper. It doesn't have the letters stamped in like you want and will complete the clean look.
