Naw the poor man inside is showing. I saw a product called e-stopp that is a electric parking brake but it cost 400 bucks and I thought to myself I could make my own for much less.lol

I was able to put some work in on the truck over the Holidays. I fabricated these bumper brackets, shaved mounting holes, to a a smoother looking bumper. Now I have to find a good chrome shop.

I'd hate for you to think all that hard work and creative effort isn't been noticed. It is. :goodjob:

We still have Chrome shops - I have been contributing to one of the best around - Sherm's in Sacramento. Kinda far for Bam, but they are the best!

The guy that I deal with at Sherm's has said that every year it is harder and harder in California.

you better call the chrome shop and see what they tell you about using filler.

to my knowledge they can not plate metal with filler on it.

Yeah we use to have way more chrome shops back in the day in Cali. The EPA has made it hard for them to say in business.

There is no filler used on this bumper
