I think my rear bumper is a little out of shape. I bought it at OCTO, had a towing ball welded directly to the bumper, probably why it was cheap and why its bent. I didnt really notice an issue til I started some mock up testing. How bent is it? Can some one help me figure out what the correct curve/straightness I need to recreate? Maybe a trace line from a decent bumper? other ideas?

The shut down has given me a lot of time to make progress.
Finished the rear bumper. Ended cutting 1/3 on top, one third from the bottom and a ratchet strap to fix the bend. Then just welded it back together.

On to the nose. Using Funky green lower A pillar, front inner, front outer, and the nose just under the headlights.

Last section of the nose going on. You can see how we decided to install. We clamped it in place and made the cut. Tigged the seam. Required a few relief cuts. We believe its simpler to do the whole nose instead of this lower section.

So, I saw the Kindigit 67DC. I went out last weekend to purchase a 4th door.
