i think that will look horrible . no offence . also theres no way your gonna be able to fiberglass the urethane bumper without it cracking . you have to make a complete mold in fiberglass of the stock bumper then modify it .

what about using ABS and adhering it with either panel adhesive or a sludge of ABS and MEK or something?

i think i may just buy a new fiberglass bumper and work with it ... and thanks for opinion it could either look cheesy as he** or cool as sh**t but either way it's different from what anyone else has...

Hey The only problem that i see you having is that the glass might crack out down the road like everyone has said, but the other problem is where you want to put your exaust system in the middle of the eclipse is where your spare tire goes. you would have to cut the spare tire hole out them replace with some steel to keep the weather out and make room for the exaust. just wanted you to now about the trouble you will run into.

If You Can Imagine It Glass It!

I need alittle help I'm new to the fiberglassing. I am currently working on a fiberglass bumper that I purchased. I have been doing alot of research but I can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. The bumper was very thin(did the flashlight test) so I reinforced it with some glass in the back of the bumper. The front of the bumper is rough has pin holes also a couple of spots that look like gum on it that I need to sand off. I purchased some icing for the holes my concerns are I think I should icing the entire front of the bumper. Then I thought maybe I could do the fleece and resin over the front of the bumper and put a few layers of mat down. This bumper is a pretty big area to cover. What I'd like to do is hit the bumper with the icing and do not add alot of harder, do my sanding then hit the bumper with some filler primer and continue to sand. Just want to know you guys thoughts on how you would tackle this
