Idk if I can cut my own bumper, but I'd willing to pay someone to do this conversion, OCD kicks in when it comes to stuff like this.

Thanks man! The bumper can be made in different ways. I just cut it where I thought it would be best molded together. The 2 cuts I made in the original bumper I made to relieve stress when the bumpers are clamped together, to help it form

Im cutting it with a small air saw and a dremel. I bonded the bumpers using a 2 part 3M epoxy made for automotive plastics, similar to the lord fusor the other guys used for their bumpers.
