X19 bumper mod

I'm sure this has been done many times, but here is my take on modifying the ugly 76 style bumpers with out spending any money. The whole job took abo+ut 2 hours. I disassembled both bumpers and used the upper bars. I turned the brackets that are part of the piston assbly. 90 degrees and bolted the top bars back on, the front brackets were bent a little to match the bar angle. I cut the rubber ends with a sawzall and sanded them with my 10" sander. Approx. 60-70% weight savings and much better looking. Before and after shots.
