Has anyone removed the top pieces of the B/C bumper guards, welded up the holes and re-installed just the remaining lower bumper quard pieces? How does it look and are you happy with this look on a B/C Outlaw car? Picture? Thanks.

You might like the look, but to most it looks like something is missing, due to seeing them always complete. They are pot metal so welding is not an option. You would have to find another way to plug the hole, I think there is some kind of low temp solder for that.

Rubber plugs for the holes might look ok- even kind of cool.

I lost one of mine while driving, it did not look right so I picked up another one. just looked way out of proportion/balance. Now taking the bumper guards off completely is another story.

The proof is in the pudding as they say. Does it work or not?
