Reshaping my front bumper (1997 Chevrolet Cavalier)
After seeing another person do something similar to this, I decided to give
this a try. he only had pics of the finished product so I decided to
document throughout the process.
this was my first experience with any type of bodywork so it isn't perfect.
I think the results look pretty good.
the whole process took about 2 weeks and about $80-90 but I didn't have any
sand paper or body working tools. the bumper was under $25 so if you
already had left over material, you could do it really cheap.
the one thing is, there isn't another cavalier out there like mine.
