I need help modding a fiberglass front bar...

I have never worked with fiberglass and am in need of some help.
The front bumper bar in question needs some custom work done to it.
In return I am able to help with suspension, brakes or mechanicial work....

It is a EL style bar that needs the top middle section modded to suit a Fairmont bonnet.

Cheers guys, Im still not used to it being higher, but it looked so tough driving down the road 60mm of the ground, but stupid to use on bumpy ground, driveways and Hills runs. Just need a 'cooler behind the mouth. :lol:

Fred did all my work, never met Mike.
