    Take one standard A4 front bumper and one bored owner!

    Seeing as the RS4 front is f%$ked again, and im in no hurry to have another re-done just now, i decided to have a play with my original bumper to use for the time being.

    How it started

    [​IMG]

    Getting a rough idea of the dimensions

    Then attack!!!!

    Wide mouth S4 style

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pile of bits

    [​IMG]

    Had some old filler to use up so just filling the seam to start and see how strong it makes it

    [​IMG]

    And how it looks so far

    Need to fill and sand a few times then add some decent looking mesh but its looking decent for what it is.

    Done a bit more sanding etc on the bumper, then put a guide coat on to see how it looks and if it needs a lot of work

    The shape isnt too bad, and it looks like it could be made into something nice if a bit of time was spent on it
