if anyone has an OEM bumper lying around, theres a company in New England that would fab one up if you send them the bumper cover so they can mass produce them. they make 240sx drift products and some FC/FD parts.

So anyone got one they arent using?

Well mine isn't done but we did get the radiator Cradle done, and the Plates cut and mounted where the Bash Bar will mount.

The bar is going to angle down but it's main purpose will be to protect my Oil cooler set up. The good thing is that I don't have any front mount etc that hangs over the front of the car, and my ducting sits well within the frame rails. Only thing i'll be worried about is the oil coolers/headlights and my turn signals. I really don't expect the bar to do much more than that. Hopefully i'll have more pics of the finished bar soon!!

Mesaged Dang Drifters about their FD3S bash bar setup.

See what happens from there.

^ looks like a battle scarred transformer missing a headlight like that! Pretty damn cool man. Does the bar mount anywhere else than just the front frame plates? Like underneath at all? Just trying to get An idea of how I should do mine.

if you use that spec, looks like you can weld on tabs near the tow hook brackets and then bolt them to that maybe?
