progress of rx7 front bumper fitment...

there was finally a nice day out today so, i decided to do some modifications to the rx7 bumper to really have a good fit & also test fit the TRD sides.
what i did was i put on the front bumper & used a pencil to mark the areas that need work & then trim, i would do the whole process over & over again until it was to my satisfaction. It took me about 2-3 hours then my damn cordless dremel died & had to recharge it. It's a bout 65-70% done, all i need to do is trim a bit more here & there, & sand the whole bumper down, then off to paint!

nice job with the atrimming, but sorry to hear that you bought a "blue" class RX7 bumper.
