they will look linda like the calmini ones, i want to put something in the spaces between the tubes. i like the mesh idea that penski does but i dont want him to think im copying his ideas. I have also thought about diamond plate, is there any other type of fill in material you can think of?

I say it would look really cool to do something like Penski61 has done to his & sexy6chicks bummpers. Id even think about a possible stinger.

The only issue with diamond plate or any solid plate is that it could restrict the air flow to the radiator too much and could cause you to overheat.

Also, I think it also depends on what color you are planning on painting the bumpers?

the plastic bumper covers the whole radiator>? building a new metal one would not be as restrictive because theres not as much mass around it? am i right or just soudning like an idiot? anyway i dont see how that would cause me to overheat.

im gunna paint them charoal metallic or black.

Your theory is right. As long as your custom bumpers don't cover more then the OEM bumper did, then you should be good to go.

That color paint will make diamond plate perfect to use. I just hate to see it used and then buffed to a shine on bumpers. It makes it look like a cosmetic only modification and not one for real use.

I think that the best idea for you is to do something like Penski61 did for his bumper. Then extend the sitnger to have a much longer point to it. Then have them lean it out abit, like pull it forward. It would give it a nice look.
