Where are you? Looks like you have a lot of deer running around.
I work in Northern Va close to DC. There are a bunch of deer around because no one hunts them. Too close to stuff for a shotgun...but no one will hear a crossbow. Hunting is legal on non posted land in this county. I've got a VA hunters license so deer are about to go nite nite.

It's been a long time since I started my Cobra lower bumper swap. Through all the years @Davedacarpainter has been a huge help with this. The PBA 3m 8115 has been holding up really well. The end caps were never finished. I tried all types of stuff....and thought....and thought some more. Tried spray foam ( like the youtubers ). Back in the day we used to make body kits out of the junk. Fiberglass and bondo over it.That crap was hell. Got one side done and ready for a mold...but the drivers side went to crap. Honestly, I could have done it with bondo but that crap is expensive for this and one time use.

Today I finally went to Micheals and bought 6 pounds of plasticine reusable, non hardeningn clay. Should've done this years ago. I used to do ceramics ( yes, statues and ash trays. Lol )but it's been a long time. Here's what I've gotten so far.

The plan is to smooth this stuff out and make a mold. Then use some type of concoction to end up with a halfway decent part. I've got a little experience making molds but this will be a challenge for me. Most of the stuff I've done has been for ceramic pieces. We'll see how this goes....might take 2 or 3 more years but I promise an update. Smh
