Bumblebee-LIKE cheap bumper look a like

Okay so i remember a while ago finding some thread where this guy tried to go for the bumblebee look by applying these square covers over the fog lights. If anyone could find me that person or the picture that would be great. I know there are some who have just put decals to make it look that way but thats not what im looking for. If i cant find this guy soon, im going to have to reach even further into my pocket for the ACS T2 bumper ports... so please save a guy some money.

Thanks guys.

That was Revolution Styling that came out with that ... I wouldn't buy from them though, horrible service and i still got ripped off from my hood deal. Lost $950 and they don't plan on returning it.

Yea I'd avoid revolution. I was going to order their hood and looked them up on this site. WOW thank goodness I avoided the nightmare the other members went through. I want those T2 acs ports but I cannot justify spending that kind of money on 2 pieces of plastic that cost more than a new bumper.

yea that might be the way i need to go... ive applied a good amount of vinyl but is there any way you could reproduce these?... did you cut out a whole for the fog lights or go straight over it? cant really see from the photo.

awesome... how much do you think you could do it for you think? just gotta make sure that its not worth it to get the t2 ports. what do you think... i have an IBM camaro and everything is pretty much blacked out.. i was thinking either matte black or silver, although the silver might be a little too much. Anybody?!

Don't forget to take into account that the v6 and v8 bumpers are shaped differrently at the bottom and foglight area.

yea good point... autobot is there anyone you know with the t2 ports? probably too much to ask but if we could get those dimension that would be great. OR anyone on c5 that has the ports, could you measure them just to get a rough estimate?

Not sure if this helps, but here is a picture of the trace of the port for a V6 bumper, with some measurements. Have included 2 pictures that show the angles of the cutout. The bottom angle is 79 degrees, and the top angle is 84 degrees. Where the metal ruler is, the cutout tapers approx 1/16 of an inch on each end. The bottom edge curves out a max of 1/4 inch. (right where the yardstick has 1/4 marked below the 9) The top edge is straight along the yardstick, except where it sticks out on the left end of the cutout. Cut one out of paper and see how it fits on the car, make adjustments to the paper. Than cut them out of vinyl. Hope this helps!

Joe
